Linda's Fruit Scones


I just love making these scones! 
Easier to pull together than biscuits,
you can use blueberries, raisins, or diced dried apricots. 

Stir together 2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Cut in 1/3 cup butter.

Stir in 1/2 cup fruit.


Stir in 3/4 cup milk til dough just clings together.


Pat on lightly floured surface til round and 3/4" thick.

Cut into 8 wedges and place on greased cookie sheet.
Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 425 for 12 minutes.


So absolutely yummy straight from the oven,
I just had to take a bite before grabbing the camera.  

Delicious morning, noon, teatime, or evening!  Enjoy!


  1. Looks delicious and sounds so simple! I might have to give this one a try... thanks so much for sharing! :)

  2. If it's not simple, it's just not going to happen around here!

  3. I just bought blueberries to make scones--might try your recipe. I have to convert it to gluten free, but I can do that fairly easily.

  4. So yummy ... would love to hear how gluten free works out for you since so many are headed in that direction.

    Thanks for dropping in this afternoon, Becky!

  5. I didn't anticipate finding a scone recipe here :)
    I'm delighted nevertheless. I love scones and am looking for a new recipe since in a fit frustration I threw out my old one in the fall!

  6. Ah yes, we've got some food stuff interlaced here and there with everything else!

    Please, let me know how it works for you, Elizabeth!

  10. I'm just delighted you've dropped by from South Africa today, Jenni! It sure is a small world ...

  11. yum! Scones are our new favorite breakfast item. I used to stay away from them bc they looked difficult, but they really aren't. Your's look so yummy!!

  12. They've been known to show up at dinner, too, Alecia, with a great bowl of soup ...


    I'm glad you stopped by!

  13. So, I was going online, late, to look for a scone recipe for Sunday breakfast. I decided to check my email first, and I had one, from you, my friend. After reading it, I clicked through to the blog to read some "good stuff," before searching for a scone recipe, and what did I find....your scone recipe! How wonderful! What a nice surprise, along with other beautiful writings. Thanks, Linda!

  14. Cynthia ... don't you love those serendipitous surprises? I hope you breakfast was lovely!
