Reviews for Blueberry Scones
"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."
"Yummy recipe add any kind fruit chocolate chips anything really make it delious"
"I NEVER CHANGED A THING..MY FIRST TIME MAKING. DID JUST AS THEY SAID AND JUST THREW IN MY MIXER AND WOW THEY ARE AMAZING.. SAVED IN PINTEREST WILL MAKE AGAIN"
"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"
"I love Starbucks blueberry scones and decided to make my own. I really like this recipe except maybe find a way to make them a tad sweeter. I added raw sugar on the milk wash before putting them in the oven for that added crunch that Bucks has. Either way, super easy recipe and delicious!! Will definitely make again!"
"I have made this recipe at least a dozen times and always used dried blueberries, cranberries or mini chocolate chips. They turned out perfect every time. With the last batch of dried blueberries I added a little more sugar and grated orange peel. All ages in my family love them; especially the little ones."
"Heavy, dense, tasteless. Like an overworked muffin. Not flakey at all. Took twice as long to cook. Adding eggs should have been the red flag. Used up the last of my butter for this and company, who will be here in 15 minutes. HELP!"
"Despite the many hateful reviews, I made these for breakfast this morning and they were DELICIOUS! A huge hit for everyone, kids and adults alike. I'm no good at kneading, and had a hard time getting the blueberries distributed evenly (I worried I had overworked the dough), but they came out perfect. Light, fluffy, and wondeful! I followed the recipe exactly. Well...I did sprinkle some turbinado sugar on top after brushing them with the the milk, but that didn't really change anything it just made them a bit sparkly! I hope you try these and love them as much as my family did!I did put parchment paper on my pan instead of greasing it (just to avoid having to wash it) and they didn't stick a bit."
