Three Berry Scones

This is off weightwatchers online- have found some great recipes there! I made this New Year's Day and everyone loved it. I used frozen raspberries as that was what I had on hand.


Three Berry Scones

POINTS® Value: 2 (about 160 cal)
Servings: 12
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 25 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy
We lightened up this typically heavy English treat by using only a fraction of the butter and low-in-fat buttermilk in place of cream.

2 cup all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cup frozen unsweetened mixed berries
2 serving butter-flavor cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix in butter until mixture is size of fine crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and then stir in berries.

Shape dough into two 7-inch circles on prepared baking sheet. Cut each circle into 6 wedges and coat with cooking spray. (I ended up seperating the scones and they baked better.. at first I left them all touching in the circle but the did better with some space between- ck)

Bake until cooked through and golden, about 20 minutes. Yields one wedge per serving.
