directions

  • First preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Then take out a large baking sheet and grease it; set it aside.
  • In a large bowl, you will need to combine your flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and allspice.
  • Cut your butter into flour mixture with pastry knife (or a fork if you don't have one - you can even use your hands) making sure to cut it through until it looks crumbly.
  • Now you will need to make a well in the center of this mixture and add the milk.
  • Beginning stirring mixture, then add your blueberries, and finish stirring until dough forms.
  • If you feel that it is not forming well, you can always add a tiny bit of milk to make it all come together, but be careful not to add much more milk, and do NOT overwork the dough.
  • Now you must form the dough into one large round (like a ball), and flatten it out into a 10 inch disk.
  • With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 10 wedges; you can do so by cutting it exactly as you would cut a pie!
  • Slide disk of scone wedges on to baking sheet sheet (not necessary to separate at this time). Brush tops with cream, and sprinkle sugar over the cream.
  • Bake scones for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Remove from baking sheet when done, and cut the wedges where you made your cuts earlier.
  • Serve warm with my blueberry sauce or with butter and honey!
  • You can even eat them plain!

    I found this to be heavy and bland even with extra butter and twice the sugar and some cinnamon added. I even added some pecans for crunch but it did not help either. Sorry, I did not care for this recipe.

    These were just okay for me. The scones were a bit dry and crumbly, I did add extra milk to moisten the dough. This is probably a good recipe to introduce people to making scones, but I think there are better recipes out there. This just wasn't a memorable recipe for me. I doubt I would use this recipe again.

    I actually didn't find these scones sweet enough for me. I substituted blackberries instead of blueberries and used whole wheat flour, but maybe I didn't put enough sugar on top - they tasted a little too bland, but this might've been my fault with my substitutions. Won't be too bad with butter and jam though.
