Freshly Picked Blackberry Scones

The bird and I just found the mother-load of blackberry bushes on the outskirts of a nearby golf course. Blackberries can be pretty spendy in the store. Plus these were fresh and local, so we definitely scored.

Once we got home, I immediately looked for some recipes to try out. I was looking for something fairly easy and healthy.
I came across this recipe for Lemon Blueberry Scones and made the fruit substitute.
They are so good! We've been having one for dessert every night!
The only changes I made were adding sea salt and brushing with butter right before baking. This made for a salty and crispy exterior.
I was worried the blackberries would make it too liquidy... so I added less than what the recipe called for blueberries, and it was perfect!
