Moist buttermilk scones packed with blackberries and melty Brie cheese.
Author: Denise
Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour {250g or fluffed, spooned & leveled}
  • ⅓ cup sugar {67g}
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • ½ pint blackberries cut in half {approx 1 cup}
  • ¾ cup + 2 tbsp buttermilk {plus extra for brushing tops}
  • 130g brie cheese, rind removed and cut into ½ inch cubes
 
Instructions
  1. Put brie in the freezer for 10 or so minutes.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 450 F.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Cut the butter into the flour mixture, and mix with a pastry tool until butter is small and crumbly.
  5. Gently fold in the blackberries and walnuts.
  6. Add the ¾ cup + 2 tbsp buttermilk and mix until just combined {be gentle}.
  7. Pat dough into 2 or 3-inch rounds and arrange on parchment or silicone lined baking sheets. Brush tops with a little extra buttermilk.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes.
  9. While scones are baking, remove brie from freezer, cut rinds off, and cut into ½ inch pieces.
  10. Remove scones from oven and form a depression in the tops using the back of a wooden spoon. Press a few squares of brie into each depression.
  11. Return to oven and bake for 2-3 more minutes until brie is melted, and scones are lightly golden.
  12. Allow to cool a few minutes on baking sheet until transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  13. Bake
 
Notes
Keep an eye on the brie so it doesn't completely run off the tops of the scones. Mine was perfect after 2 minutes of baking.
Make sure to keep butter cold. Mix dough just prior to baking.
