saturday scones // linden

With the new year comes new goals and this year was no different from any other. One of my goals is to eat healthier and try to eat less sugar and treats. These scones are definitely a treat but everything in moderation right?! My oldest begs for these every Saturday morning.... definitely a family favorite.
This is what you will need:
1 3/4 Cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 TB sugar
8 TB room temp butter
1/2 C dried blueberries or cranberries
1/2 C. white choc chips
2/3 Cup buttermilk
Pre-heat oven to 400
Mix dry ingredients. Add your softened butter and buttermilk. Mix until everything is incorporated. Add and mix in dried fruit and choc chips.
Spray scone pan with cooking spray and fill with your batter. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Mine usually go for about 18 min.  Let cool and drizzle glaze on top.
Glaze:
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 TB milk
slivered almonds (optional)
Enjoy!
