Mixed Berry Scones

Hello and happy hump day! Today we’re talking scones. Yummy delicious scones. With berries. did I mention that?

These are a perfect breakfast for you on-the-go types a well a those work-from-home types. Just perfect all around!

So I decided to whip these up because a) they are easy to make and b) because I had some fresh berries that I needed to use. I used strawberries and blueberries in this mix, but you can use whatever berries you have on hand. You can even use frozen berries right in the scones. (the frozen berries may blend a bit more in the batter as they cook, but they will still taste great!)

As we head into summer — oh wait, did I speak too soon? Didn’t it just snow up north??? Crazy. well it’s starting to get warm down here in Alabama so — ya’ll are welcome to come visit and get out of the cold! But anyway, as I was saying…with summer right around the corner and berries coming into season, these will definitely be a go-to in our house!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this quick treat on your Wednesday! Half way through the week!

See ya’ll tomorrow!

XO, Danielle
