Blueberry Scones

Will asked me a few days ago if we could make blueberry scones. I searched my cookbooks and found a recipe after John came home from a quick grocery run with some yummy blueberries. It was my first attempt and they were most delicious.

Blueberry Scones

2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
6 Tbsp butter
1/2- 1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Mix dry ingredients. Cut in 6 Tbsp butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Slowly add buttermilk (start with 1/2 cup and add more only if needed) and mix gently. Mix blueberries in very gently. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into two balls. Flatten each ball out with hands into a 6-7 inch circle. Cut each circle into 4 pie wedges. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm and enjoy.
