1 c. all purpose flour
1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3 T. sugar
2 T. butter, cold
1 c. fat free buttermilk
2 c. frozen berries (I used a blend of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries)
Preheat oven to 400. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and cut into dry mixture. Pour in buttermilk and mix, then mix in berries (still frozen).
Cover a baking sheet with parchment or foil. Divide dough (which is quite sticky) into 2 mounds and shape into flat, approx. 7 inch diameter circles. Cut each circle into 4 wedges.
Bake for 20 minutes.
This recipe was inspired after I ordered a (very tasty) scone at Starbucks that cost me almost 1/4 of my daily calories and fat. I knew I could make something similar for less. I think these turned out very well, and I have already eaten one as a snack with a glass of milk. At this rate, I may have to make another batch before the boyfriend comes home.
Recipes up to bat for tomorrow:
Potato and Bacon Soup
something with the anasazi beans I picked up at the farmer's market - they are soaking as I type!
