Thanks to Hot Eats Cool Reads for this saving money recipe for Blackberry Scones with Lime Glaze
. I have never made baked scones before but the recipe seems simple enough… so maybe I will have to give it a try.

What you need:
2 c. all purpose flour
1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 c. butter, chilled
3/4 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c. fresh blackberries
1/4 c. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 c. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp lime zest
1/2 tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into 6-8 chunks and add to flour mixture. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour mixture until it reaches a sandy consistency, making sure there are no butter chunks bigger than a pea. Combine milk and vanilla extract, and add to the flour mixture. Stir until dough comes together and gently knead in the blackberries. (I had some very ripe berries, and they will get somewhat squished, that’s ok!)
Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and flatten into a disk about 1 inch thick. Using a knife, cut dough into 6 triangles. Place scones on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.
While the scones are cooking you can prepare the glaze. In a glass microwave safe bowl, combine the lime juice, powdered sugar, and zest. Stir until completely mixed and sugar is dissolved. Add the butter. Microwave for 30 seconds and whisk to mix in melted butter. When the scones are finished, cool slightly and drizzle glaze over top.
