Saskatoon Berry Lemon Scones are wonderfully delicious and pair beautifully with a cup of coffee and a visit with family and friends.
Pre-heat your oven to 375F and line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder and stir with a whisk or fork to combine. Then, stir in the lemon zest.
Cut the butter into cubes, add to the flour mixture and then using your fingers combine the butter into the flour mixture until you get small pieces of butter left. Add in the berries to the flour mixture and stir gently.
Stir in 1 ¼ cup of milk until the dough just comes together. If you notice the dough is still a bit dry / there is flour remaining, add in an extra ¼ cup of milk and stir once more to bring dough together.
Take the dough out of the bowl onto a floured surface and knead gently, turning over about 2-3 times and then shape the dough into a rectangular disc.
Cut the dough into 8 triangles and put each scone onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops of each scone with a little bit of milk and then bake in the oven for 22-25 minutes until golden on top.
