Berry Cream Scones
Serving Size:8|Prep Time:20minutes|Cook Time:20-25minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Zest lemon into a large mixing bowl and add 1/3 cup sugar. Combine lemon zest and sugar with fingers until a sandy texture is achieved.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, oat flour, 1 cup rolled oats, baking powder and salt. Combine flour mixture with lemon zest sugar mixture.
  4. Cut chilled butter into dry ingredients using a pastry cutter, fork or fingers until butter is evenly distributed and mixture is crumbly.
  5. Separate egg, reserving egg yolk for glaze. In a small mixing bowl whisk together egg white, cream and honey. Slowly mix into flour mixture with a wooden spoon or spatula. Mix until just moistened.
  6. Fold berries into dough until evenly distributed. Use hands to create a shaggy dough ball, gathering up any dry bits. Turn dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Pat or roll dough into a square, 1 inch thick.
  7. In a small bowl whisk together the reserved egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of heavy cream. Brush onto surface of scone square and sprinkle evenly with 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 tablespoons rolled oats.
  8. Cut square into four equal pieces. Cut each quadrant in half towards the center creating eight triangles. Place triangles on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow scones to cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before serving.
Chef’s Narrative
A tender and satisfying scone celebrating the ethereal sweetness of seasonal berries. Great on their own or slathered with fresh butter, jam or clotted cream.
