I am a sucker for a scone. I can’t go through a drive thru at a coffee shop without getting a scone. There is something just satisfying about them as they are almost like a biscuit and almost like a muffin. I had never made them before today, but I have to say I am pleased with my results and want to share all that sconey goodness with my readers.
2 Cups of Flour (plus a little more for your workspace)
1/2 Cup of Sugar
2 and 1/2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Stick of Frozen Butter (½ Cup)
1/2 Cup of Heavy Cream
2 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
1 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a large bowl. Grate the frozen butter using a box grater. Add it to the flour mixture and combine with a pastry cutter.
Place in the refrigerator
Preheat the oven to 400°F
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
Whisk the wet ingredients minus the blueberries together in a small bowl. Drizzle all over the dry ingredients and then add the blueberries, mix together gently until everything appears moistened. Do not over mix
Flour your workspace and hands
Pour the dough onto your workspace, form the dough into a round ball as best you can. This is a sticky moist dough,
Press into the dough ball gently starting at the middle until you have an even circle about 8 inches in diameter
Then using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife cut like you would a pizza into 8 slices
Use a spatula to layout onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet and place them into the oven on the top or middle rack.
Check on them in 20 minutes but likely they will be done closer to 25. You will know they are done when they are golden brown on the tops.
