Mixed Berry Tangerine Scones

Mixed Berry Tangerine Scones by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

We have been crazy for scones around my house lately. I just can’t get enough of them. I’ve been making a few batches every week. I love them with coffee in the morning, or as a snack in the afternoon. They even make a great snack for my son’s lunchbox. I’ve been making lots of different flavors, and these tangerine and mixed fruit scones are my latest creation.

Citrus is in season in Florida now. The oranges, tangerines and tangelos are dirt cheap. I pick up a few every time I go to my local farmer’s market. In addition to a very juicy tangerine, I used a bag of mixed dried berries, and a little vanilla. These scones made the whole house smell wonderful as they baked. Their intense aroma was a great way to wake up my family on a Saturday morning.

Mixed Berry Tangerine Scones

Ingredients:

2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup very cold butter, cut in pats
1 tablespoon tangerine zest
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk or cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dried mixed berries (blueberries, cherries and cranberries)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450°. Combine flour and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Add tangerine zest and butter. Using a pastry knife, incorporate the butter in the flour until it is grainy.

Add egg, milk, vanilla extract and berries. Mix until just combined. Use hands to finish incorporating flour into the dough.

Form a disc with the dough on a lightly floured surface and cut into diamond shapes.

Transfer scones to a parchment or nonstick surface on a baking sheet.

Bake at 450 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
