Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min.
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 4-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cold butter
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk, divided
- 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a bowl, whisk eggs and 3/4 cup milk; add to dry ingredients just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; gently knead in the blueberries.
- Divide the dough in half. Pat each portion into an 8-in. circle; cut each into eight wedges. Place on greased baking sheets. Brush with remaining milk. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Serve warm.
Editor's NoteIf using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

I bake daily either at home or at work and THIS is a PERFECT scone recipe! For those reviewers that suggest these are "too dry" or "not sweet enough" aren't familiar with scones! By definition a scone is a small "unsweetened or lightly sweetened biscuit like cake"...

Scones turned out soft and flakey, but they were rather bland and definitely not sweet enough.

I don't know what I did wrong but I followed the directions exactly and all I got was a very dry consistency that wouldn't hold together. 4 cups of flour seems way too much with only 3/4 cup milk. Should this have been only 2 cups like other recipes? I tried adding a little more milk but didn't help much. I mixed everything by hand and cut in the butter. Maybe using my mixer would have been better but I was afraid of over mixing. Ended up throwing it all away. Was so looking forward to these! This was my first recipe failure.

Did a 1/2 batch because wasn't sure what a scone was. Used frozen blueberries and baked in oven since had power, came out great.

Very yummy! I halved the recipe since there are only three of us, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. We ate them with lemon curd and it was a perfect combination! Thank you for sharing this great scone recipe!

I agree with another reviewer. I could not get all the flour to incorporate and because of this I could not knead it because it kept falling apart. It was tasteless and like gum. very disappointed, was going to serve at a brunch but it was terrible.

This was really good! I have never made scones before and they were everything I had hoped they would be. I am definitely going to make this again and you could really make it your own by adding whatever you want. It was a little too many blueberries when it came to mixing I think next time I would do a cup. We also made a simple glaze for the top though they were perfect on their own!

Messy! I would have used dried blueberries
