Blackberry and Fig Hand Scones
Makes 8-10 Ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup whole wheat flour 1/3 cup brown sugar 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon baking soda ¼ teaspoon sea salt 2 tablespoons chilled, unsalted butter 1 large egg ¾ cup milk + 1 teaspoon white vinegar or lemon juice {plus more milk, to finish} 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1 cup fresh blackberries 2-3 fresh figs, quartered Liquid honey, to serve Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. In a large bowl, whisk flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the butter, and cut it in {using a pastry cutter or butter knives} until the mixture is crumbly. 3. Stir in the egg, milk mixture, and vanilla, and mix just until combined {do not over mix}. Here’s where it gets messy! Turn the dough out onto a clean surface and pat down; pour the blackberries over top, and then fold the dough a few times, to incorporate the blackberries. 4. Grab a handful of the dough and delicately shape it into a mound. Place it on the parchment-lined sheet and then gently press a fig quarter on top. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving a couple of inches between each mound {this recipe will yield about 8-10 scones, depending on the size of your hands!}. 5. Brush each scone generously with leftover milk, and then place in the preheated oven to cook until golden brown, about 18-20 minutes. Serve warm and drizzled with honey, if desired.
