Blueberry Scones

Awhile back I made my first scones.... and while the first time they were a FLOP, the second time they turned out well.  So, I wanted to try a basic blueberry scone.  Nothing too sweet or complicated.... and I LOVE anything with blueberries!  I used the basic ingredients from the first scones and switched this one up a bit.  They worked really well and taste perfect.  


First, mix all dry ingredients together... flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. 


Then, with a fork or pastry cutter, add your chilled butter (cut in pieces) to your dry mixture and "cut" the butter in until it resembles large bread crumbs. 


Mix an egg and heavy cream together and add to dry mixture.


Then add blueberries... or any other fruit/filling you'd like... and stir until it just comes together.  

 

Turn your mixture out onto a cold surface.  The mixture will be very crumbly. 
Form into a circle with your hands and roll out slightly with a rolling pin.  Cut into triangles. 

Place scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. 
Bake at 350 degrees until edges are slightly browning


 Let scones cool completely and then ENJOY!  ;)


Ingredients:

3 cups All Purpose flour
1/3 cups sugar
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter (chilled)
1 egg
3/4 cups heavy cream
