Guys. THESE SCONES. I tried to come up with an appropriate title to convey how much I love them. “Best Scones Ever” seems hyperbolic. “Crumbly hunks of butter and berries” doesn’t sound appetizing. “What I Make for Breakfast Anytime I Have Overnight Guests” wouldn’t look cute on a pinable image. So “Berry Citrus Scones” it is.
I’m serious that this is my go-to breakfast if we have guests and I want to make something a little extra-special. These have also become my traditional Fourth of July breakfast (as in, I’ve done it like twice so with my track record for consistency, that’s a tradition) because the berries make them red, white, and blue! And a little purple too, it’s all good. This particular batch used frozen berries (because I always have Costco’s three berry blend in the freezer) but I’ve also made them with fresh blueberries and fresh chopped strawberries and they are super good either way.
Please just trust me on this, though. These scones are out of this world, especially with the orange zest (this is one of my favorite kitchen tools and makes zesting a breeze). Actually, you don’t have to take my word for it (Readinggggg Rainbow…..), just try them yourself. Today, preferably.
