Do you have a favorite scone?

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
Mix well

In a small bowl add
1/2 cup sour creme
2 eggs
Mix well

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?
