Blueberry Scones made my way have a blueberry overload!

A scone really is in between a muffin and a biscuit.

I make scones the American way which is a little different than European scones across the pond! Americans like their scones a little sweet, fluffy, and moist, almost like a muffin but not quite. Europeans prefer scones leaning more towards a biscuit and not so sweet.

I love that the top has a bit of a crunch to it from the milk and sugar!

If I have some light lemon curd or some mock Devonshire cream to slather on these, then I am even happier!

The Nutritional Information is based on using a 16-wedge mini scone pan, (pictured) made by Nordic Ware, so they are half the usual scone size.

This MINI SCONE PAN is available on Amazon or the Nordic Ware website.

One this size is only 125 calories or 3 Weight Watcher Points.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup butter cold
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup half and half cream
  • cups blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons milk to brush the tops
  • 2 tablespoons sugar to brush the tops

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°.
  • Grease or spray a 16-wedge mini scone pan.
  • In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  • With a pastry blender, cut in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in the egg and the cream and mix it lightly, only until a dough forms. DO NOT overmix! Overmixing makes them heavy!
  • Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Pat the dough into prepared mini scone pan. OR, you can divide the dough in half and shape each half into a 6-inch circle. Place the circles onto a greased cookie sheet.
  • Brush the tops with milk then sprinkle some sugar over the milk.
  • Bake at 425° for 14 minutes, or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Do not over-bake!
  • Cool the scones in the pan for 15 minutes, then invert them onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • If you used the dough circles on a baking sheet, make 6 wedges by cutting all the way down while still warm, and remove the wedges to a wire rack to cool.
  • Store the scones covered at room temperature.

EXTRA TIP:

VARIATIONS:  * You can use an 8-wedge scone pan instead.  They will take more baking time.  * You can divide the dough in half and shape each half into a 6-inch circle. Place the circles onto a greased cookie sheet.  Use a cake tester to test for doneness.
