- 1 3/4 c. flour
- 2 1/2 t. baking powder
- 1/4 c. + 1 T. sugar
- 1/4 t. salt
- 6 T. butter
- 1 egg
- 1/3 c. cream + water (optional, if dough is too dry)
- 2 t. vanilla
- 1/3 c. frozen blueberries
- 1/3 c. white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender until pea size or slightly smaller.
- In a small bowl, whisk egg, cream and vanilla. Add to dough and mix until dough has almost come together. Fold in blueberries and white chocolate chips. Continue mixing until the dough holds together. (If dough is too dry, add ice cold water)
- Turn dough out onto floured surface and shape into 6-inch round and about 1- 1 1/4 inches thick (I like mine on the thicker side).
- Cut into 8 equal sized wedges. Space evenly on baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Brush the tops with cream or egg wash and sprinkle with turbinado sugar for a darker top.
- Drizzle with vanilla bean glaze (optional), recipe below
This is probably my most requested recipe and for good reason- these scones are freakin’ delicious. I first made them years ago, but when I moved, the recipe managed to get lost in the shuffle. I can’t even be too sure where I got the first recipe, but I found this one on the Food Network, which worked perfectly. I took some ingredients out, added some of my own and voila! The most perfectly sweet scone. This isn’t your typical “tea and scone” scone, this one is just fine without clotted cream or jam, but is amazing with the vanilla bean glaze here (I would definitely half the recipe).
I kinda have this thing for everything British, which is why I love tea and scones so much. England is definitely on the list of places to go and I hope I can go sooner, rather than later. While I was in New York, I went to Tea and Sympathy. They are about as authentic as they get, without crossing the pond and a “must go” anytime you’re in NYC. Although New York isn’t quite as far as England, it still isn’t very convenient for me. Ha! While I may have to save my pennies for England, I can make and enjoy my own scones right at home and so can you! Thank you for reading, have a fAB day.
