"Berry" Scones

The Menu:
"Berry" Scones
Blueberry Scones *Drool*

The Original Recipe:
This recipe comes from my friend April. I have written about her recipes before. I love the way April cooks and bakes. I have learned many things from her. I am sad, though because she still lives up in Pennsylvania, and we have since moved. I am so thankful for email and Facebook. With out these things I would not have been able to aquire her awesome recipe! This is her scone recipe that she shared with me. I made it tonight for the first time, and they turned out WONDERFUL! They are named "Berry" Scones because you can use any type of fresh berry that you would like.

"Berry" Scones
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
8 Tbsp frozen UNsalted butter, grated, freeze again
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon zest
fruit of choice (and for some reason there is no measurement)
melted butter for on top
dusting sugar

oven 425

Mix flour, sugar, soda, bk pwdr, salt and zest in a bowl.
In another bowl mix the sour cream and milk.
Mix frozen butter into the flour mixture. Add the liquid and quickly fold together until just incorporated.
On a heavily floured cutting board knead 6 or 7 times, it will be a shaggy mess. Roll out to a 12 inch square. Fold in 3rds 2 times (a small square).
Dust with more flour, freeze for 5 minutes.
Flour board, roll out to 12 inch square. Spread fruit over top and gently press into dough.
Roll like a cinnamon roll, making a tight log. Flatten out a little with your hand and cut into 4 equal squares then each in half to make triangles.
Brush with melted butter, sprinkle with sugar.

Bake 18-25 minutes, cool for 10
