These scones are great any time of year using fresh or frozen blueberries. I serve them alone as a snack or as part of a meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
