Three Berry Scones

Good morning! If you haven’t already eaten breakfast, make these scones! They are very delicious and very light. I had some troubles making them, but really they are very easy. I have learned that fresh raspberries are very hard to work with so use at your own discretion. Weight Watcher’s folks, this comes right from the Weight Watcher’s website and are 3 points plus! Definitely a perfect treat for 3 points. Recipe below!

Ingredients:

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

3 Tbsp Sugar

1 Tbsp Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp Salt

2 Tbsp Regular Butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

1 Cup Low-Fat Buttermilk

1 1/2 Cup Unsweetend Frozen Mixed Berries

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line  baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix in butter until mixture is size of fine crumbs. Stir in buttermilk, then berries.

3. On a prepared baking sheet, shape dough into two 7 inch circles. Cut each into 6 wedges; oat with butter-flavored cooking spray.

4. Bake until cooked through and golden, about 20 minutes. Yields one wedge per serving.

I couldn’t make the dough into 2 circles, and frankly, I didn’t even try. I rolled mine into a log and cut 12 pieces, so mine came out round. Pretty much the same thing right? I also missed the spray with butter flavored cooking spray step. Mine tasted good without that so I would say if you don’t have that in your house, don’t worry about it!

 

Blueberry Scones

Like I said before, I tried to use fresh raspberries and blueberries, but the raspberries were too hard to work with so I had to throw out that dough and start over. My second batch, which is above, is just fresh blueberries and a tiny bit of lemon juice and some lemon zest. They taste very good, I am happy with how the lemon flavor came out in them.

The dough is hard to work with when mixing in the berries, so be careful. In my second attempt, I mixed in the berries at the same time I was mixing in the buttermilk so it would be easier to mix. I also mixed it with my hands once the buttermilk became mixed in. There are some pieces that have more blueberries than others, but what can you do!

Enjoy!
