Scones. I love their rustic look, their crumbly texture and their not-so-sweet taste. I have always thought they would be way too hard to make, until my friend Annie saved me again and introduced me to this Blueberry Scone recipe.
These scones are very easy to make and they turn out every single time I make them.
To make these scones, you will need:
3 1/4 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. butter – cold
1 c. milk
1 c. blueberries
Preheat oven to 400°. Combine dry ingredients, sifting to mix.
Cut cold butter into small pieces.
Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is coarse crumbs.
Toss blueberries with some flour before adding them.
Mix in milk and blueberries to the “coarse crumbly” mixture of butter and dry ingredients. Mix just until combined. Knead on a floured surface for 6-10 strokes.
Roll into a thick circle and cut into wedges. I sprinkle them with a little bit of sugar before I put them in the oven.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.
These blueberry scones are so good and they don’t take a lot of time to make. My family loves them and I kind of feel like Martha Stewart when I am taking homemade scones out of the oven.
Today, I am over at DodgeHQ.com sharing a game we like to take on road trips. This game is perfect for when you stop to stretch your legs and take a little break from driving or when you are in a new city exploring everything they have to offer.
Here is a little of what I am sharing:
“This particular scavenger hunt is all about nature. All you need is the great outdoors, a bag (to hold your finds), a pencil, clipboard and the following list:”
We have done this activity on many road trips. It gets the kids moving and grooving after being stuck in a long car ride and it helps the time pass because they have something to look forward to at each pit stop.
