Chew on This: Blueberry Scones

24 Apr

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Today instead of showing some designs I am going to share a super yummy recipe with you. I love scones so I found a recipe via Martha Stewart for Blueberry Scones. I changed it up a little as I often do with recipes. So here is the recipe and some pictures of the steps and finished product. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar, plus more for sprinkling tops
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, picked over and rinsed
1/3 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing tops
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a large bowl, sift together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter mixing lightly until mixture is coarse and crumb-like.  Stir in blueberries.
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 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 inch thick. Using a floured knife, cut into four squares then into triangles. Transfer to baking sheet. Brush tops with cream, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes. Transfer scones to wire racks to cool.
TA-DA!
They are so yummy! Enjoy!!
