Step 1

In a large bowl whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and then with a pastry blender cut in the butter to look like coarse crumbs.

Step 2

Gently fold in berries into the flour mixture trying not to mush them or you will get pink scones.

Step 3

In a small bowl combine the cream, beaten egg, and vanilla; mix well but being careful not to mush the berries.

Step 4

Knead gently on a lightly floured board being careful of the berries; roll or pat into a 7" circle about 1 1/2" thick.

Step 5

Cut circle in half and then each half into four pie-shaped wedges; place on a baking sheet and brush the tops with egg wash.

Step 6

Bake in 400 degree oven on the middle rack so they won't get too brown on the bottoms; place one sheet on top of another sheet and bake for about 20 minutes.

Fresh is best so that is what I used. They are all ready for tomorrow's breakfast. Of course I had to try one out. Delicious! Glad I doubled the batch!

These are delicious scones and easy to make too! They were tender and so tasty. I love raspberries and used frozen ones in this. I just dipped them in flour before adding them to the mix. So happy I made these!

After trying your awesome twists, I had to try these scones to see if I could successfully make them without them being dry as a bone. Well guess what, they are delicious and not dry at all. Loved the raspberry!

We loved these scones! The flavor from the fresh raspberries really made these scones special. They were so moist and delicious!

It's been so hot that I decided to experiment one day and made these using my grill. I put it on high to heat the grill then turned down to medium and put into a greased frying pan on the unheated side of the grill so they wouldn't burn. They came out excellent and were golden brown on the bottom. I used raspberries one time and strawberries this last time. Such a great scone recipe and they were moist and so delicious with the fresh fruit!
