These blueberry scones are so good. They are one of my favorite things for breakfast with coffee.
2 cups self-rising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 stick or 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup blueberries
2/3 cup walnut pieces
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in the butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, and whipping cream. Add to the flour mixture. Mix until becomes a dough. Fold in blueberries and nuts. Spread dough on a floured surface and pat or roll out in medium sized squares about 1 inch thick. Cut squares into triangles. (I use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into triangles) Spray a baking sheet and place scones on sheet where they don’t touch each other. Brush the tops with melted butter and bake in 425 degree oven 20 to 25 minutes. Makes about 12 scones depending on size you cut your triangles. Serve with your favorite jam, jelly, butter, syrup or topping. We like them with the topping recipe below drizzled over the scones. Enjoy!
