“Blueberry Scones made my way, with a blueberry overload, and the American way, sweet and fluffy, almost like a muffin but not quite. A scone really is a taste between a muffin and a biscuit, but this leans more towards a muffin. The top has a bit of a crunch to it from the milk and sugar.
I think Americans like their scones a little sweet and moist, while Europeans prefer scones leaning more towards a biscuit and not so sweet.
If I have some light lemon curd or better yet, some mock Devonshire cream to slather on these, then I am even happier to have a little taste of heaven!
The Nutritional Information is using a 16-wedge scone pan, so they are half the usual scone size. One this size is only 113 calories or 3 Weight Watcher Points. Enjoy!”
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup half and half cream
