Its hard to imagine but life has had me so busy lately that I have had not an extra second to work on my blog. St. Paddy's Day is my all time Favorite holiday. I love it even better than Christmas and it is because of the food. But I haven had the time to even think about the food lately until today. I have one week to enjoy all of the St. Patrick's Day foods I can and get them on or repeated on my blog. This happens to be my favorite scone recipe! And I have tried many.
In a large mixing bowl add
2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
In a small bowl add
1/2 cup sour creme
Grate frozen butter on cheese grater.
Add to flour mixture. Use your fingers to mix. It will be like pebbles.
Add the liquid mixture to butter/flour mixture.
Mix to distribute. It won't come together completely. DO NOT ADD WATER!!
Turn out onto floured area.(notice I am so into taking pictures that I forgot to add flour to my own surface! oops)
Knead with hands two minutes or until it comes together.
Flatten out and add 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries. Fold over an knead into dough.
Form into an 8 inch circle or a circle that is 3/4 inch thick.
Transfer to a cookie sheet and cut into 8 triangles. Separate each. Now my Gram liked to have them an inch apart. I like to have them closer together. It makes the cook time a little longer but they are more moist!
Take two TB milk, brush over top of scones.
Sprinkle with sugar and cook 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes
What is your favorite flavor of scones?
