Dry Ingredients 

3 cups of flour

1 cup of sugar

1 tsp of salt

1 tsp baking soda

5 teaspoons of baking powder

1 tsp of nutmeg

2 cups of blueberries

Wet Ingredients 

4 sticks of butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 cup of buttermilk

1 cup of blueberry preserve

lemon zest

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut each stick of butter into 4 and slice into cubes.
  3. Place the butter cubes in the freezer for 5 mins.
  4. Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  5. Add the butter and mix until the dough starts to look like small peas. I used a standing mixer, but if you do not have one, use your hands to incorporate the butter into the flour.
  6. Pour the buttermilk and vanilla into the dough, and mix. The dough will be sticky and very soft.
  7. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  8. Put 2 cups of flour on a cutting board, or kitchen counter.
  9. Add the dough onto the floured surface.
  10. Fold the dough to make it less sticky.
  11. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts.
  12. Pat dough into a 6-inch square about 3/4 inches thick.
  13. Then, using a floured knife, cut into four 3-inch squares.
  14. Cut the squares in half on the diagonal, to form eight triangles.
  15. Add a few tablespoons of coconut oil to a baking sheet. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet.
  16. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  17. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 15, or until the tops start to brown, and around the edges are brown.
  18. Warm the blueberry preserve in the microwave and add the zest from one lemon.
  19. Drizzle the preserve over the scones.

 

Hey everyone, this recipe can be used to make multiple variations of scones. You could make: orange and cranberry scones, chocolate, cheddar, pumpkin, basil and mozzarella or bacon and Cheddar Cheese. The possibilities are endless, so have fun creating amazing scones.

    1. It’s pretty good. They are similar to Biscuits, but are sweetened with sugar, fruits, or chocolate. There are also savory ones. Go out a try one from your local bakery, then try my recipe. I enjoy mine with tea, coffee or hot chocolate. 😊😊
