Maddalena Fuller



  • 6 cups of flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 oranges worth of grated zest
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1+ 1/3 cup of soft butter
  • 4 tbsp shortening
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup thawed frozen blackberries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the dry ingredients and then fold in the wet ingredients. Do not overwork the dough. Form large disk shapes with your hands and then cut wedges like slices of pie. Or use a round cookie cutter to cut biscuit rounds. The recipe makes many many scones, I don’t remember how many, so feel free to cut it in half for 12 largish ones. Brusch the scones with a mixture of egg and milk, and sprinkle sugar on top, and then bake for 12 – 17 minutes – removing them once the edges start to turn a golden brown.
