Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles a fine meal. Remove to a large bowl and toss in the partridgeberries and orange zest. Make a well in the center of this mixture.
  3. Mix together the orange juice, vanilla extract and milk. Pour into the well and mix only enough to form a dough ball.
  4. Roll to 1 inch thickness and cut out scones in trianges or with a biscuit cutter and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Brush an egg wash (1 egg whisked with 1 tbsp water) over the tops and sprinkle surfaces with sugar.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25- 35 minutes or until golden brown. Baking time will vary depending on the size of your scones. This recipe makes 12 large scones.
