To make, combine your dry ingredients in your mixing bowl. Take cold butter and cut into small cubes. Butter needs to be cold and not room temperature. Make sure to use butter and not margarine to get the best tasting scomuffie. Add cut up butter to the dry ingredients and mix until you achieve a grainy texture to the flour.
In a separate bowl, add eggs, vanilla and buttermilk and mix till combined.
Don’t have buttermilk for your Chocolate Covered Berry Scomuffies?
Make buttermilk with milk and lemon juice or white vinegar. In a one cup measuring cup pour 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar, then fill the cup up with milk. Let sit for at least 5 minutes and milk will sour. You can also use powdered buttermilk. Mix according to the package directions.
Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture along with the dried berries and mix ingredients until incorporated. Do not overmix! Add the chocolate covered berries and gently mix by hand.
Portion out scomuffies using a # 16 leveled scoop. Place dough in opposite hand. See video!
Dip the top of the scomuffies into sanding sugar and place the undipped bottoms onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake scomuffies at 325 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Check scomuffies by inserting a toothpick to check for doneness. Continue baking if needed. Bottoms of the Scomuffies should be golden brown.
