The Republic of Tea makes some delicious teas of which one of my favorites is called Blackberry Sage. That is where I got the idea for this scone…
2 cups AP flour
6 Tabl sugar
5 Tabl butter
1 Tabl baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
1 tsp grated lemon rind
1 tsp chopped fresh sage
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup half and half (milk is fine too!)
raw sugar for sprinkling on top before baking
First grate lemon rind and chop sage. Preheat oven to 400 F degrees
Stir flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt in large bowl. Add lemon and sage. Cut in cold butter until coarse crumbs are formed.
In small separate bowl mix sour cream, half and half, and vanilla.
Whisk these together well and add to flour mixture. Stir gently. Turn out on to flour surface into a long rectangle. Cut into triangles and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Gently brush with some half and half and sprinkle with raw sugar.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until tops or golden….
