W.W. Three Berry Scones


I have started back on Weight Watcher (which I should of never strayed from). So I went looking for a Berry recipe other than my smoothie one I make. Came across this one and   knew I had to try it. I have a thing for scones. These scones are good and even got a thumbs up from "the Man of the Place". So good that I had my limit 2 and he had the rest of what was on the plate, 4.

Right now I only baked half and froze the other half for another time. It's been said in the comment section that they'll freeze well.
You must try, they are moist and tasty and
I'll make these again.

Three Berry Scones  

They lightened up this typically heavy English treat by using only a fraction of the butter and low-in-fat buttermilk in place of cream.

    1. Not me and that is why I need to get my eating habits back. I have so little control when it comes to scones. These I can have and not have to cut down the portion size, just enjoy.

  2. I think you missed the buttermilk in the above list of ingredients. It should be 1 cup(s) buttermilk.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
