DIRECTIONS

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