Earlier this summer 222 Fifth sponsored a Boston Blogger Bake Off featuring a small but mighty group of passionate food bloggers based in the metro Boston area. One of those bloggers, Amanda Light of Prim and Propah, dazzled the team of judges, tasters, and her fellow bloggers with this recipe for Mixed Berry Sour Cream Scones.

Watch Amanda’s Boston Blogger Bake Off demo below and get inspired to cook up a batch (or several) for your friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, the subway driver, your local coffee shop barista…. anyone who gives you a good excuse to get in your kitchen and bake.

A perfect summer treat to take advantage of late summer berries at farmers’ markets near you, this recipe also works well with any frozen berries of your choice. Whichever method you choose, we know that you will love them!
