Strawberry Blueberry Orange Heart Scones






1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries 
1 cup fresh strawberries sliced and in half
1/2 cup light brown sugar
pinch of cinnamon
Zest of 1 small orange
2 1/4 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
Extra flour

White sugar, for topping

Heat the oven to 350 and prepare two baking sheets by lining with parchment or lightly spraying with spray oil.
Chop the strawberries into small half slices either by hand set aside. Wash blueberries pat dry and set aside. In a bowl or food processor mix all dry ingredients then add chilled cut up butter into the dry ingredients, add brown sugar and orange zest into the food processor or bowl and mix until fine and crumbly. Stir in the beaten egg and milk. Fold in fruits.
Sprinkle the counter or a board with flour, and dump the dough out on it. It will be very wet and sticky. Mound a rectagular mound around an inch high and cut into desired shapes. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until just getting golden. While warm drizzle with a mixture of confectionary sugar and leftover juice from the orange to make a very thick glaze. Drizzle over the top of warm scones. Serve warm.

Forgive me if this is a duplicate - my comment shut my computer down! (It was that enthusiastic!) Because I love the sweet berries in this and cannot think of a better way to gently wake up my family. And the bonus is - it is so pretty!
