Mixed Berry Scones are the perfect start to our Red, White and Blue tea party in celebration of the Olympics for Summer Games Week. I selected countries that had Red, White and Blue in their flags. Today’s country is the United Kingdom. These are delicious served with Mock Devonshire Cream and your favorite berry jam.

Scones are traditionally connected with England, Scotland and Ireland although their true origin is unknown. They are a staple as a starter course for a traditional tea. I love scones and like to experiment with flavors and recipes.
I am super excited to watch the Olympics starting this Friday, July 23rd. We had four individuals from our town and my kids High School and their swim team qualify for the Olympic Trials. One of them qualified for the Olympics this year! We couldn’t be more excited. Our small town is thrilled and everyone is cheering him on. More about this on Friday when I share a recipe representing the USA.

Mixed Berry Scones Recipe
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 tsp, baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ cup salted butter, cut into pieces
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- ½ tsp. almond extract
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Spray a scone pan with non stick cooking spray. Be sure to coat the corners and sides of the pan to make sure the scones will just pop out when done.
- In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry blender. The mixture should look crumbly when mixed. Pour the frozen berries into the flour mixture and toss to coat.
- I a measuring cup, combine the cream and almond extract. Pour into the flour mixture and stir until moist. The mix will be somewhat dry but the liquid should be completely mixed into the batter.
- Press the batter into the scone pan ensuring it is evenly spaced throughout the pan. You don't want one scone to be much larger than the others for instance
- Bake until tops of scones are golden brown, approximately 30 minutes.
