I love scones. Especially blueberry scones. There’s just something about them that makes a person feel more grown-up and sophisticated and let’s face it, they taste amazing. There’s nothing better than a scone with a cup of coffee or tea in the morning to get your day started.
I’ve used the same recipe for years now. I think I originally found it on epicurious.com, here. However, I’ve made quite a few changes to the recipe including less butter and a few tweaks to the recipe itself. This is a great recipe to impress guests coming over or even one to make now while guests are still visiting!
Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas!
BLUEBERRY SCONES RECIPE
3 c flour (I have used my fresh ground wheat but the scones tend to dry out after one day. I now use regular)
1/3 c sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt (if using non-salted butter)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 stick of butter, frozen
1 c chilled buttermilk (I make my own by adding 2 T vinegar to 1 c milk and letting it sit for 5 minutes)
1 c blueberries
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt (if using), and baking soda into a bowl. Cut in butter and use fingers to mix butter throughout (my dough resembles coarse meal at this point). Add buttermilk slowly and blend well. Add blueberries, trying not to overmix. You will notice that my dough is very blue. This is because I mixed the blueberries in before adding the milk (grr!). If you do not want this blue tinge in your dough, make sure you add the milk before you add your berries and that you do not smash the blueberries while mixing.
Turn the dough out on to your floured counter. Form it into a thick round, about 6 inches in diameter. Slice into 8-16 wedges and place on a greased baking sheet. If your dough is slightly stick like mine was, place in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Bake at 400F for 25 minutes.
*You can sprinkle the slices with raw sugar before placing them in the oven for a crystallized look.
Be honest. When you hear the word cauliflower, you can’t help but think blah, what else is there to eat? I’m here to change your mind. Forever. These three vegetarian dishes will blow your minds and make you rethink your thoughts on all things cauliflower. If you’re craving Italian-style foods but healthy eating has managed to…
I am not much of a decorator. In fact, I have very few decorations laying around come Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s not that I don’t like the holidays – I love getting together with family, eating good food, celebrating the meanings of each, and of course, drinking A LOT of hot chocolate! I’m just…
I’ve been loving colorful walls lately. We ran across this one during our day trip to Philly – it was a part of the Magic Gardens (but free) and gave you a small taste of what the actual mosaic gardens would look like. My sister shot these photos for me and we had fun trying to…
I’m going to dub the next few weeks “Peach Week” since all I have been cooking with recently are peaches. I’m not complaining. I was never a huge fan of peaches until I tried a white peach and then I converted in an instant. White peaches are some of life’s best and if you’ve never…
I know burgers are a “man’s food” but I have to admit that I could eat a burger every week and not get bored. And even though I love beef burgers, I’m not picky either – I’ll eat chicken, veggie (portobellos…mmmm), you name it. One of my favorite things to do is to play around…
I found this top while browsing the clearance pages of Asos. It’s amazing how great the deals are when they’re hosting their clearance events. Dresses, especially, are a steal and if you’re searching for that special something, you can bet that you’ll find it on their site. We shot this outfit a few weeks ago,…
