It’s time to make amazing, mouth-watering blueberry scones!
Every year, after we go blueberry picking together as a family, we make a TON of amazing blueberry recipes. One of my personal favorites is to use my typical scone recipe to make blueberry scones.
Don’t have blueberries? Picked a different fruit instead? No problem! You can leave the blueberries out of the recipe, or simply add a different fruit, and still get great results. I’ve had these scones plain with just a bit of butter and jam, and used them to make a blueberry shortcake topped with whipped cream. The options are endless!
Now, I’m not British, so I didn’t grow up eating scones. But I did see them around on the Food Network from time to time. And so as an adult, I decided to try my hand at making them myself. It took a while, but I finally found a great recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks – Fannie Farmer – for cream scones.
These are the perfect scone. Not too sweet, not too dry, and always easy to make. It only takes about half an hour to whip these up, and you have the perfect vehicle for a delicious breakfast or dessert.
Don’t have a family of five like I do, to eat these all up super quickly? Not a problem! You can freeze them for later. Just be sure to wrap them tightly, and pop them into an oven at 350 degrees for about five to seven minutes to thaw them out and get them piping hot again.
But a warning – they are so tasty they may never make it into the freezer!
Read on for the recipe – you can also pin it to try later, or check out my YouTube video with full instructions! You can watch me make these delicious scones, as well as having some frugal family fun picking blueberries with my boys, see a number of other blueberry recipes, and drool over the finished product.
Fresh Cream Blueberry Scones
Here’s how you make these amazing blueberry scones:
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup cream
- 1 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl until combined.
Work butter into the flour mixture with your fingers, a pastry blender, or fork until fully combined. The mixture should resemble a coarse meal.
Mix the eggs and cream together in a separate bowl, and add to the flour mixture. Stir until nearly combined.
Add in blueberries and gently stir.
Once combined, knead the dough for about a minute.
Roll or pat the dough about 3/4 of an inch thick. Cut into eight wedges and place on a baking tray lined with parchment. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Pin it for later!
