I have so many of her recipes bookmarked to try. Previously I have made the Cookie Dough Fudge that I found at her blog and it was so tasty. Many thanks to Jess for this recipe!

  • Baking Sheet
  • Parchment Paper Sheets


For the Blackberry Scones:

  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3-1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter cold and cut into chunks
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup blueberries frozen or fresh
  • 1/2 cup blackberries frozen or fresh
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk or cream for brushing

For the Honey-Butter Glaze:

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter


  • sparkling sugar to sprinkle on top after glazing


  • Put lemon juice into a liquid measuring cup and add heavy whipping cream to the 1 cup mark. Let stand for a few minutes to make soured cream.
  • Heat oven to 425°F. Arrange oven rack to upper third position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a food processor, add flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and blend briefly. Add butter and pulse to make coarse mixture. Turn out mixture to a large bowl and make a well in the center. Add egg, vanilla extract, and enough soured cream to make a soft but firm dough. Gently fold in blackberries and blueberries.
  • Turn out dough to lightly floured surface and knead briefly to make a firm dough. Pat out dough into 1-inch thick circle. Cut dough into wedges or rounds and place on prepared baking sheet. Brush each scone with milk or cream.
  • Bake 16 to 19 minutes or until scones are nicely browned.
  • While scones are baking, make the glaze by heating honey and butter in a liquid measuring cup until melted mixture is simmering (about 1-1/2 minutes). Brush scones with honey-butter glaze as they come out of the oven. Let scones cool for about 15 minutes before brushing on honey-butter glaze once more. Since these scones are so moist, I recommend storing them in the fridge and reheating until warm.


I used 1 cup of frozen blackberries and omitted the blueberries only because I had a lot of blackberries to use up. I think it was tasty using only blackberries, but I think I would have liked the combo of the two as well.
I sprinkled a bit of sugar crystals on after the glaze to give it a little sparkle, but this is optional.
These scones are extremely moist. At first I kept my scones covered in a Tupperware on the counter top but this led to the scones almost being too moist, so I transferred them to the fridge and reheated when someone was ready to eat one.
As seen in one of the photos, I had a honey butter compound that was not melted and used that on the scones. This would be a great alternative to the glaze if you wanted to avoid the stickiness factor.

    I have been making these scones for a couple of years now and they are my husband’s and son’s absolute favorites. I cut them into mini wedges and they demolish them.
