Whole Wheat Blackberry Tea Scones

Some of you have recently requested my recipe for tea scones.. 
So those letters have inspired me to do a spot of baking today.

I present to you: 
Whole Wheat Blackberry Tea Scones

You'll need:
3/4 cup skim milk
1 egg
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup white sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
6 T. cold unsalted butter (cut into small pieces)
2/3 cup frozen blackberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk together milk and egg, in a large bowl whisk flour sugar, baking powder and salt. With a pastry blender (or two knives) cut butter into flour mixture, until it resembles coarse meal. Stir in blackberries (frozen blackberries work good, we picked these last summer and saved them for a winter-y day). Stir in cream and egg mixture until just combined, careful not to overwork the dough. 

Transfer dough to lightly floured surface, pat into a 6" circle. Cut into six wedges, and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 16-18 minutes or until lightly golden. 
I'll share some photos of the finished result shortly. 
Until then!
