Bacon Blueberry Scones

 Bacon Blueberry Scones
“Blueberry scones offer a nice alternative to muffins in the morning,” writes Patricia Harmon from Baden, Pennsylvania. “And the bacon adds a savory twist to this recipe, making the scones a nice addition to a brunch…or any time at all with a cup of coffee.” TIP: Sprinkle the tops of scones with sugar for a sweeter taste and a little sparkle!
