Scones are NOT biscuits. Although made with almost the exact same ingredients the difference is scones have the addition of eggs and biscuits do not. Scones tend to be a bit drier than biscuits yet when done correctly not really dry at all. Scones should be more on the crumbly side and biscuits should be airy, with light fluffy layers that hold up well to a gravy, jams, and jellies.

How to make blueberry scones

The best part of this recipe is the frozen grated butter. If you’ve never made a scone or a biscuit this way you must give it a try. This step makes all the difference in light and fluffy scones or the perfect layers in your favorite biscuit recipe.

Grate the frozen butter stick and place in back in the freezer while you prepare and measure the other ingredients.

Preheat the oven to 375ºF. In a large mixing bowl whisk the granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour. Remove the grated butter from the freezer and gently toss with the flour to coat.

Toss 1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries ( I usually use about 1 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries) in the flour-butter mixture to coat the berries.  Make a well in the center. Add the beaten egg and heavy cream into the well and mix gently with a fork or wooden spoon, incorporating the dry ingredients a little at a time until the dough starts to look shaggy. DO NOT overwork. Lightly knead the dough in the bowl until it just starts to come together.

Transfer each wedge to a large baking sheet lined with parchment, placing about 2 inches apart. Brush the top of each scone dough wedge with additional heavy cream and sprinkle with coarse sugar. (We use raw sugar.)

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. These scones freeze beautifully as well. Just thaw and reheat or eat at room temperature.
