TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and orange juice just until moistened. Gently fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; gently knead 10 times. Pat into an 8-in. circle. Cut into eight wedges. Separate wedges and place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 8 scones.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
