  • 2 cups all-purpose flour or gluten free flour blend
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter cubed very cold
  • 1/2 cup whole milk or whatever kind you have on hand
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips optional but strongly encouraged
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries quartered*
  • melted butter and raw sugar for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a food processor pulse flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add in cubed butter. Pulse for 5 seconds, until the mixture looks like wet sand.
  • Pour flour mixture into a large mixing bowl and add milk and sour cream. Mix until just combined.
  • Mix in chocolate chips (if using).
  • Gently fold in blackberries trying not to smash them.
  • Using a 3 Tbsp muffin scoop or large spoon, drop scone batter onto a baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Brush with melted butter or milk and top with raw sugar.
  • Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.
  • Allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy with lemon curd, butter or raspberry jam.
  • These scones can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the refrigerator for 1 week.


* If your blackberries are small you can leave them whole, otherwise chop in half or quarters.
