Stir until dough comes together (some berries may become slightly crushed).

Expert Tips

  • Use a box grater with large holes for grating the stick of butter, and make sure it’s very cold for best results.
  • Store cooled scones in an airtight container at room temperature 1 to 2 days or in the refrigerator 3 to 4 days. They can also be frozen up to 3 weeks.
  • These scones are equally as delicious made with blueberries or raspberries.
