Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix in large bowl the flour, sugar, salt & baking powder.
  2. Cut in butter with pastry blender (or fork) until flour becomes crumbly.
  3. Then add the beaten egg, cream and vanilla, combine just until mixed. (Gently use hands so you don't over-mix or the scones will be tough, not crumbly.).
  4. Carefully fold in blueberries with hands (if using chocolate chips, you don't have to be as gentle.) Do not over-mix.
  5. On a floured surface, knead by hand for a minute and then form a 6 inch circle.
  6. Cut into 8 triangles with a pizza cutter. Put onto a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Brush with the cream/egg mixture.
  8. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Remove to cooling racks.
  9. To make butter mixture, combine all 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until butter melts.
  10. Pierce the scone with your fork in a few places, and pour some butter sauce over scone.
  11. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea!
