I have to be completely honest, scones have never been a particular favorite of mine. Many times they are dry and hard. It takes a glass of milk per bite to get them down. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the idea. They just are not a go to of mine when I am craving something sweet. But then…I met the Blueberry Scones recipe.
This recipe that I am going to share with you will change your taste buds on the topic of scones forever. These scones are so moist with the perfect outer crust. They are firm without being hard as a brick! I am now a scone lover and you can be too if you give this easy Blueberry Scones recipe a try.
When we were making this recipe I honestly thought it would be a waste and we would end up throwing away the scones. I figured we would waste time, money and calories on something that was “just okay” at best. So very glad I was proven wrong! It was the best time, money and calories ever spent. I also got a lesson on giving foods I haven’t found to be too great another try! This was a wonderful and unexpected lesson!
Tips For Blueberry Scones
For this Blueberry Scones recipe you will need a stick of butter that is frozen. So when you are planning on making this recipe you will want to put a stick of butter in the freezer the day or night before. You will be grating the frozen butter so you will need to have or borrow a grater.
A pastry cutter will also come in handy when cutting the grated butter into the mixture. If you don’t have one two forks will work also.
When you are ready to add the blueberries to the batter you will want to very gently fold them in with a spatula. If you end up mashing the blueberries the blue color will bleed throughout the batter.
Happen to be a hot tea lover? A cup of tea goes beautifully with these scones. If not, a cup of hot coffee or a tall glass of cold milk goes with them just as well.
I was actually very surprised at how easy these were to make. They didn’t take much time to whip together and were not difficult at all. Another pleasant surprise!
They would be perfect if you are having a brunch or need a pretty dessert. They just have that elegance factor to them.
