I found this recipe via google search because I couldn't find the piece of paper (!) my regular recipe is written on. These are pretty good, but not as tasty as my regular recipe. I'll probably be going back to that one.
These are wonderful! Best I have had in a long time. I have tried baking scones before and never liked the outcome. I did tweak the recipe a bit though. Instead of using all milk I used 1/4c sour cream and 1/2 c milk ...I also added a hint of orange extract and cinnamon to the mix. The blueberries were interesting to fold in and kind of messy. But well worth it. When they came out of the oven I drizzled a powdered sugar/milk mixture on them while they were still hot and WOW. These are going to be great for gatherings.
The blueberry scones were great! It is a great breakfast or dessert. They are very simple to make and very tasty! I love scones, and these are the best scones I have ever had! My whole family loved them. I love baking, and this is a really great recipe to use! This is a keeper! Yum!
Worked very well, except for the folding in blueberries. I used frozen wild Alaskan blueberries, and despite using them straight from the freezer, they made a mess. I wish I had used only half a cup, instead of 1.5 cups.
I tried two other recipes I found online before I found this one - this one is the best. I used buttermilk and 1/2 cup sugar instead of regular milk and only 6 Tbs. of sugar. Added 1/2 cup of chopped dried cherries along with fresh blueberries. So good the kids preferred these over the choc chip scones I made the same day. Buttermilk wash and sprinkled with extra sugar before baking. Can't wait to try this recipe with other fruit.
