Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk Note 1

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg, whisked with a pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon unsalted butter, seasoning for scone maker

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season the scone maker with butter. Set aside
  • In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. 
  • Cut in the butter with either a pastry blender or forks. Note 2. Gently fold in blueberries.
  • Whisk eggs into buttermilk. Stir the mixture into the flour/butter combo till combined.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead a few times, 4-5, shape dough into a rectangle and divide dough into 8-10 triangles and transfer to the scone pan. 
  • Brush tops of the scone with the egg wash. Bake in the oven for about 25 minute. Test tops by using a toothpick into center of scone. Toothpick should be clean. Remove from oven. Let cool about 5-10 minutes. Remove scones and finish cooling on a wire rack. 
  • Feel free to pop one open and enjoy with some butter or jam.

Notes

Note 1: Fresh blueberries are my favorite. Frozen blueberries or dried blueberries can be used.
Note 2: I have used clean hands to blend in the butter into the flour.
