Perfect Blueberry Scones

Without a doubt, fresh blueberry scones are one of our favourite weekend indulgences. Finding the perfect recipe took a bit of trial and error. The recipe below is the result of a lot of tweeking. These have the right texture, they are light as air, and just a perfect example of a scone. Please understand, scones are NOT muffins. They are not meant to be as sweet as a muffin, nor the same texture. If that is what you are looking for, go for a muffin recipe instead. I freeze the washed and sorted blueberries over night. I do this so that you don't end up with purple dough, and it is much easier to work with.

ingredients

directions

  • Adjust rack to centre of oven, and heat to 400 degrees.
  • Place a piece of parchment on a baking sheet, and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, 4 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, or two knives, cut in butter until the largest pieces are the size of small peas.
  • 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 with fork just until dough comes together.
  • 5. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead a few times to mix well.
  • 6. Pat dough into a 8-inch square about 1 inch thick.
  • Take blueberries from freezer and place them in single layer across dough, pressing lightly into dough.
  • Gently fold dough in half and make sure blue berries stay inside.
  • Delicately, spread dough out with floured hands to form a 6x6 square, about 1 and 1/2 inch thick.
  • 7. Using a sharp knife, cut into four 3-inch squares.
  • 8. Cut squares in half on the diagonal to form eight triangles.
  • 9. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar. I like to use a coarse sugar on top.
  • 10. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes.
  • 11. Transfer scones from baking sheet to wire racks to cool.
