  • Of Food And Love: Blueberry Scones

    I’m getting more adventurous.  It’s scary.

    So, last week we attended the sweetest ballerina tea party, where baby R’s teacher treated us to delicious goodies including scones.  I’m not really a scone person, truthfully, I’m more of a bagel and muffin type of gal.  But these scones stole my heart.

    There are all sorts of scones to be made, but I chose blueberry, again.

    A nice handful of blueberries was all I needed.

    This recipe was reminded me of my buttermilk biscuits because I had to slice the cold butter into the dry ingredients and then knead it around.

    (this is after I’ve kneaded in the butter, added the egg, milk and those sweet blueberries)

    Sticky little mess that I sprinkled with flour, patted into a thick, relatively round pizza pie shape and cut…

    I laid them on wax paper so they wouldn’t stick to my cookie sheet.  15 minutes later they were smelling up my kitchen and looking picture book perfect.

    We munched on them with a steaming cup of papa’s black tea in hand.

    Enjoy!  Thank you to Jess for passing along this recipe.  It is NOT mine, she found it somewhere on the internet and I don’t know who to credit it to, but please let this warm your bellies.  They are so, so easy and don’t take but a minute to whip up.
    Hello, lazy Saturday morning breakfast.

    Scone Recipe::

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 Tb baking powder (yes, tablespoon)
    2 Tb sugar (I might use a little more…)
    1/2 tsp salt
    3 Tb butter
    1 egg, beaten
    3/4 cup milk (give or take, and I used the whole 3/4 cup)

    Mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
    Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs.  Stir in the egg.
    (At this point, add in your nuts, fruits, chocolate chips, cheese, etc.)

    Gradually add the milk until a thick dough is formed. (more or less a 3/4 cup milk)
    Turn out the mixture onto a floured board and knead lightly.  Form scones.
    Place 1 inch apart on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Brush tops with a little beaten egg or milk.
    Bake in a preheated oven, at 450, for about 10-15 min until golden brown.  Serve warm!

    Spiced Scones::  Add enough cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice to the dry ingredients to total 1/2 tsp.
    Dried Fruit Scones:: Add 1/2 cup raisins, currants, cranberries, or chopped dried apricots.
    Chocolate Chip Scones:: Add 1/2 cup white or dark chocolate chips and 1 tsp vanilla to the basic recipe.
    Lemon Scones:: Add the juice and zest of one lemon and 1 Tb sugar to the basic recipe.

    Oh my goodness! Those look really yummy! I have a chocolate chip scone recipe that makes enough for an army. I may have to try this one for those times when I want a smaller batch, not to mention my whole family hearts blueberries! Thanks for sharing!!

    I started making some last night, got halfway done and realized I had no eggs!! So.. To be continued! I am excited to make them :) thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Aww, absolutely! So glad you’re enjoying my posts! And I really hope you love these scones, so easy. But, I would advise to go light on the milk, don’t pour it all in at once, just a little at a time to make sure the dough doesn’t get too soppy.
