Any-berry Scones

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup butter
8 ounces sour cream
1 egg yolk, beaten
3/4 cup frozen berries (frozen berries work best as they don't squish so much)

Stir together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Cut in butter until it is the consistency of coarse crumbs. Stir together the sour cream and egg yolk. Add to the flour mixture and stir until combined. Turn dough onto floured surface and knead lightly until soft dough forms, pressing in frozen berries as you go. Pat into a 7" circle and cut into wedges. Place on a greased baking sheet 2" apart.

Bake at 400* for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.

To make a glaze mix powdered sugar with a little cream and just a dash of almond extract. drizzle over scones while they are on the cooling rack.

thank you, kathleen, for sharing your recipe with me!
