Kittencal's Jumbo Bakery Shop Blueberry Sour Cream Scones

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is like the scones that are sold at a bakery mabey even better! --- chocolate chips, raisins or dried fruit may be used in place of the fresh blueberries. If desired drizzle the top of each warm scone with Kittencal's Easy Creamy White Glaze ---- this recipe was tested and developed using full-fat sour cream and butter, I cannot promise the same results using low-fat or no-fat sour cream or using shortening in place of butter

These scones are WONDERFUL. I am enjoying one right now. I made them exactly as described (with the glaring error that I forgot the 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar). It did not seem to make any difference. I live in Jamaica where very cold butter doesn't stay very cold for long once it leaves the fridge, so I cut into very small cubes worked it in with a pastry blender and then finished mixing quickly with my fingers. Blueberries are hard to come by so I used orange flavoured craisins and I am sure I will try other variations. Forming the dough into a ball and cutting into wedges was very easy and they came out perfectly shaped, perfectly sized and perfectly delicious. No problem in handling at all. The texture is exactly what I expected and they are wonderful with a little lemon curd-another British delight-spread on them while still warm. I will definitely make these again and with any luck there will be some left tonight when my husband gets home.. Thank you Kittencal-wonderful, as always
