I’ve never made homemade scones before and these were so good! I will definitely be making more scones in my future! 😊
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, frozen
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 heaping cup blueberries (fresh or frozen, do not thaw)
coarse sugar for sprinkling on top before baking
1.Preheat oven to 400°F. Adjust baking rack to the middle-low position. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
2.In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Grate the frozen butter (a food processor also works). Toss the grated butter into the flour mixture and combine it with a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Set aside.
3.In a small bowl, whisk the cream, egg, and vanilla together. Drizzle it over the flour mixture and then toss the mixture together with a rubber spatula until everything appears moistened. Slowly and gently fold in the blueberries. Try your best to not overwork the dough at any point.
4.Work the dough into a ball with floured hands as best you can and transfer to the prepared baking pan. Press into a neat 8″ disc and cut into 8 equal wedges with a very sharp knife. Top with a sprinkle of coarse sugar (if you don’t have any on hand, a light sprinkling of reg sugar will do). Separate the scones so there is a little space between each one.
5.Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked through. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few min.
