I love scones on day one. I still love them days 2 and 3 but I rather wish they would not dry out quite so much. This method of brushing them once, as soon as they come out of the oven, and then twice, about 15 minutes later, with a syrup of butter and honey solves the problem in a very sweet way. The scones stay wonderful and flavorful for a good 4 days and the sweetened crust is irresistible. Double berries make these special as well as using soured whipping cream. You know how you add lemon juice to milk to sour it? So that you get the benefits of a buttermilk vis a vis an exceptionally high rising scone? Okâ¦now you know how whipping cream makes scones extra tender? Now, imagine both attributes: high-rise and extra tender, flaky scones. That is what souring some whipping cream does. Almost any fruit would do in these, but this mix of blue/black fruit, not to mention the taste, is exceptional.
