  • Blueberry Scones

    I had these when on vacation in California and I wanted to try and make them at home. Does anyone have a T&T for these? There are so many recipes out there that are so different that it's confusing!

    Here is the recipe that I use.

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    3 tablespoons sugar, plus more for sprinkling tops
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into pieces (3/4 stick)
    1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, picked over and rinsed
    1 teaspoon lemons, zest of, grated
    1/3 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing tops
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten

    Adjust rack to center of oven, and heat to 400 degrees.
    Place a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper on a baking sheet, and set aside. In a large bowl, sift together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, or two knives, cut in butter until the largest pieces are the size of small peas.
    Stir in blueberries and zest. Using a fork, whisk together cream and egg in a liquid measuring cup.
    Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and pour in cream mixture. Stir lightly with fork just until dough comes together.
    Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead a few times to mix well.
    Pat dough into a 6-inch square about 1 1/4 inches thick.
    Using a floured knife, cut into four 3-inch squares.
    Cut squares in half on the diagonal to form eight triangles.
    Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar.
    Bake until golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes.
    Transfer scones from baking sheet to wire racks to cool.

      Thank you, SuzieQ. I'm going to get blueberries so I can make them. When it says cream, can I buy something called heavy cream at the store or what is it called?

        Yes, heavy or whipping cream. Sorry that I didn't answer sooner. I had dental surgery yesterday and was feeling like crap pretty much like today also.
