Blueberry Scones

Of Scottish origin and often served with tea, these scones are like a sweet biscuit. Blueberry is our personal favorite, but the recipe can be substituted with cranberries, raisins, or just cinnamon. They’re not too sweet and fairly light with a golden exterior and a soft interior.

STEP ONE – Preparations

  1. Set the oven to 375°F with an oven rack in the middle.
  2. Lightly spray a baking sheet with canola spray.
  3. Get out 2 medium bowls.
  4. Set up a cooling rack.

STEP TWO – Prepare the Dough

Ingredients:

1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
¼ cup of white sugar
½ teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 egg
½ cup of sour cream or “sour milk” (½ cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar)

Instructions:

  1. In one of the bowls, melt the butter in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. Set aside to cool.
  2. In the other bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt and mix well.
  3. Add the egg, sour cream, and vanilla to the cooled butter and whisk them together to blend.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine them without over-mixing.
  5. Very gently mix in the blueberries just to combine.

STEP THREE – Cut the Dough and Bake

  1. Sprinkle a little flour on a clean countertop.
  2. Lay the ball of dough in the middle and spread it out into an 8-inch diameter circle using your fingertips.
  3. Cut the circle into 8 pie-shaped pieces.
  4. Using a spatula, slide the triangles off the counter and onto the baking sheet.
  5. Top with a sprinkle of raw sugar.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tips of the scones are lightly browned.
  7. Transfer to the rack to cool.
