Blueberry Scones with sour Cream
What could be more enticing than fresh smelling scones in the morning? Featherlight with a sudden burst of blueberry now and then with each bite - now is there a better way to start a day? Especially if it's a Monday? Or how about starting a special day , say a Valentine day (like today) with something special made by you instead of the store bought goodies?. I made these in the morning for our breakfast and they disappeared pretty fast.
Blueberry Scones with sour Cream
I used a pretty basic scone recipe,customized to add in sour cream for the richness and made sure to include a generous helping of blueberries. I love to use blueberry in my cakes and muffins. We don't prefer anything too sweet, hence I have added very minimal amount. If you like your scones sweet - add more.

For making Substitutions please refer my handy chart:

1. Add the dry ingredients together.
2. Grate the cold butter into it. I do it since it helps me to mix in the butter better and convert into a bread crumb like texture.
3. Add rest of the ingrediants.It will little sticky, its fine - slowly add in the blueberries.
4. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead gently until you can roll it out easily
5. Using a rolling pin, spread it into medium thickness flatbread - expanding about 9-10 inches
6. Cut it into wedges
7. Place them on a greased baking sheet
8. and bake them at 375F for 20-30min until golden brown.Cool them and store in a air tight container.
You can even freeze them and defrost them in m/w when needed. Blueberry Scones with sour Cream

WOW!! I made these and they came out amazing!! They were so soft in the inside. :) the only thing is that I mixed the blueberries in before the dough came togther so it was kinda hard for me to mix both the bough with the berries. That may be my fault because I get a bit scared and frustrated when try to knead dough that becomes really stick. In the end some of the berries broke. Do you have a tip that might help me? If so please share. Also I haev to say thanks for these amazing recipes. They are so simple and come out amazing. I have made scope before and honesly they never came out this amazing. :)

The scones are in the oven and are looking good and smelling yummy!  I followed the recipe to the letter, but found it to be a bit dry after I had added all of the ingredients, so I added a little bit of milk at a time until the consistency looked right.  Also sprinkled a smidge of sugar on the tops before putting them in the oven.

Grating the butter was a genius idea!

:) hi, i just have the first scone baked using your recipe for my breakfast. The crust is very crispy on the outer layer and the texture is soft and fluffy on the inner layer. I will bake again soon! Thanks for your magical recipe.

:wink: hello, I tried ur recipe today. It should turn out just right. I can smell the buttery fragrant from the oven when it was baked half way. However, I baked double of your recipes so I placed my scones with two trays in top and bottom of the oven. It ended up my scones on top was burnt when it is done. And my bottom scones are not done yet so I baked another 5 minutes. I should have take the scones from the top earlier so it won't be burnt. Anyway, I will surely try your recipe again. By the way, can I know how many ml or gram is 2/3 cup of sour cream? All my measuring cups doesn't have 2/3, the nearest measurement is 1/3.

I started making these using raisins but I showed a friend how to make them and she doesnt like raisins so she used cranberries. They turned out really good. I also have a friend who doesnt eat any sugar, so we made them with 1/3 c. Splenda and then she could eat them and they still turned out.

I can't wait to try these! Have you ever made them with whole wheat? I'd like to know so I don't waste ingredients on a batch if they are too dense.

By Jess on Mar 11, 2011

Love, love, love this recipe! It was a cold, gloomy day and these scones really cheered me up.

By meiyen on Jan 27, 2011

hi there.. just to drop you a word that i tried your recipe. I find the scone sizes a bit to large..personally i prefer dainty things because they are easier to eat. Use a round shape cookie cutter for smaller sized scone. Also, i don't know why but my scones turned out a little crumbly, like they would break into half when i pick them up. Do you have any idea to remedy this?

By Hyowon Kim on Nov 23, 2010

I've been looking for the perfect scone recipe just like this!! This is so good and tender! Thank you!

Hey! Do you have any idea what other fruit I can use other than blueberries? We don't get blueberries in India :(

I think any other berry should work equally well. How about strawberries?

By sunita on Jun 25, 2010

HI DIVS I wll be making them soon,sitting in the office my mouth is watering till i reach home and bake them, thanks darling

By Gigi on Jun 10, 2010

I am trying to make this recipe right now and have a question....when mixing the dough while adding the do you stop them from smashing? was i supposed to mix dough together first THEN add berries?

You have to handle the dough gently and add the blueberries slowly in it. If one or two breaks here and there, its totally fine. While baking few of them are going to ooze out anyways. Don't worry about that - but just make sure you knead it gently otherwise the scones will turn out hard :) --DK

Just made these scones - yum! Substituted 3/4 cup of whipping cream for the sour cream and they turned out great! Light and flaky, good consistency, great right out of the oven. I will make them again. Ann Thats Great Ann. Thank you for letting me know...Whipping sounds awesome. I will try with it sometime too...:)
