These Scones Were Amazing!

Today I had my Boys in the Kitchen cooking class.  Oh me, oh my. What should we make?  One bowl apple cake from Grace at Sense and Simplicity?  My wonderful almond cake?

Well, I settled on my White Chocolate and Saskatoon Berry Scones that I am now selling at the Farmer's Market.  Well, let me tell you...these boys can make my scones any day.  Look how wonderful they are!  One lad was 10 years and the other 12 years.  Neither adept in the kitchen at all!  Just goes to show you, anyone can cook if they want to!

White Chocolate and Saskatoon Berry Scones

2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons butter, cut in small squares and chilled
1 large egg
2/3 cup whole cream
3 oz white chocolate
1 cup saskatoon berries

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Whip the egg until foamy and add the whole cream.  Set aside.

Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder.  Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or your fingers until the size of rolled oats, small peas and all sizes between.

Add chocolate and berries to the flour mixture and toss to coat.  Pour in cream mixture.  Mix to moisten with a spatula or fork.  Knead the mixture 5 or 6 times to bring it together in a ball.  Turn onto a floured counter.  Pat into a circle.  Cut into 6 pieces.

Bake on a parchment lined baking pan for about 20 minutes.

  1. Love the new look of your blog Sarah, and I could never turn down a scone. I missed Saskatoon berries this year but perhaps dried blueberries would work.

  4. Boys can be goofy in the kitchen, rather than all serious like the girls, so they're a lot of fun. Their scones look good!
