Too much mixing, kneading, and baking will produce dry and tough scones.

    To me, scones are made with buttermilk. I swapped the cream for the buttermilk. I like it with dried cranberries as well.

    Hey Martha, let's think of the environment! A printer friendly version need not be 3 pages long.

    Okay I love scones and these are THE PERFECT SCONE!! I added 1 tsp vanilla extract to the wet mixture but I followed everything else to the T! I served with Kerry Gold Butter and honey :)

    These are delicious. Light and tender and not sweet, which I like.

    Not a good recipe. Panera Bakery makes better blueberries scones

    An excellent blueberry scone recipe! Scones are not intended to be sweet - it is very British. These are delicate and light and moist. I made the recipe exactly as directed and got wonderful results.

    does anyone know if frozen blueberries would work?

      I tried it and the frozen berries sweat and make the dough harder to come together but they still tasted great.

    My hub and I both thought these needed more sugar! I thought 3 T was not a lot but went ahead since no other review mentioned this. They tasted like a flaky, crunchy blueberry pancake almost. Is Martha there to comment on this??

      I agree! I liked the consistency of the scones but would add more sugar next time. Maybe the recipe would be okay as-is if you had exceptionally sweet blueberries, or if you put a glaze on them.
