Scones are absolutely fantastic!!! They are similar to a biscuit; lightly sweetened and perfect for breakfast or to enjoy with an afternoon cup of coffee or tea. These Blueberry Scones rise beautifully while they bake and have such a wonderful crumbly texture. When you bite into the scone and that blueberry bursts in your mouth, its just heaven! My favorite way to eat these scones is to slice them in half and toast them in a pan with a little bit of butter. Make yourself a latte, espresso or cup of tea and savor each and every delicious bite.
This recipe is really very simple; a handful of ingredients, a bowl, spoon and your hands. The key to getting the texture right is not overworking the dough and using cold butter. The cold butter creates steam pockets and thats what gets you that light and crumbly scone.
This is a great base recipe so go ahead and experiment with different flavors. Keep them plain to serve with jam or honey. Strawberries, raisins, chocolate chips, cranberry or even a savory cheese and herb version would all make for a fantastic scone! With these Blueberry Scones I went with a triangle shape but you can work them into squares or rounds, have fun with them!
