Cherry Berry Breakfast Scones Ingredients for 12 scones: 2 cups flour 1/2 cup sugar 2 level Tbsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 2/3 cup dried Door County cherries and berries 1 stick cold butter, cut into small pieces 1 1/4 cups cold heavy whipping cream 2 large eggs Mint leaves, garnish Berry Honey Butter 1 stick butter 2 Tbsp seedless raspberry jam 1 Tbsp honey Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the dried cherries and berries. Cut in the stick of cold butter with a pastry cutter or knife until coarsely blended. In a separate, smaller bowl, stir together the whipping cream and eggs. Pour the cream and egg mixture on top of the flour mixture. Use a large fork to gently fold and stir in the liquid until it is formed into dough. Do not over stir. Divide the dough into two equal parts and place on a floured counter space. Gently shape each part into a large ball and flatten into a circle, about 1-inch thick. Take a sharp knife and cut the dough into 6 equal pie-shaped wedges. Place each scone on a floured baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat and bake for another 5 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve immediately with the berry honey butter. For the berry honey butter: Blend butter, jam and honey together with a fork, then whip with a small wire whisk until smooth. If butter is too hard to work with, soften it on the defrost setting in the microwave for a few seconds so it will be easier to work with. If it gets too soft, just chill it a bit.
