Baking: Blueberry Scones

Winter food is so warm and comforting, but it can be a little bland. So I try to infuse summer flavor in any way I can find. On a cold morning with a cup of hot chocolate, these scones are not only delicious but very filling.

  • Put the 3 c. of self rising flour, 1/2 c. sugar and 3/4 c. cold butter, cut into small pieces.
  • Pulse several times until butter is in small pieces about the size of peas.
  • Next add 1/2 c. whipping cream and vanilla. Pulse several times adding additional cream until dough starts to form a ball.
  • Add blueberries and pulse several times to mix well.
  • Place dough on floured board.
  • Lightly knead several times.
  • Roll out to 1/2 inch thick.
  • With floured round cutter, cut out scones.
  • Re-roll left-overs until all the dough is used.
  • Place on baking sheet, with an egg, well-beaten, brush the top of the scones. And sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.

  1. You are having surgery. Focus on healing. The blueberries can take care of themselves for now.
