Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.

  • Whisk flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Cut in butter with 2 knives or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir blueberries and buttermilk into the flour mixture until combined.

  • Gather dough into a ball and knead on a lightly floured board for 2 minutes. Then roll dough out into a 3/4-inch-thick slab. Cut into 3-inch triangles with a sharp knife and distribute scones evenly onto the prepared baking sheets. Brush tops with egg white and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Remove from the baking sheets and place on cooling racks. Dust tops with powdered sugar; serve warm.

Cook's Notes:

Margarine may be used in place of butter, and frozen blueberries or raisins may be substituted for fresh blueberries.

Dough can be prepared and frozen ahead of time.

I accidentally added a whole egg to the buttermilk and blueberries before adding to the dry ingredients. I was convinced they would be less than perfect with that big change. But, my family all agreed that they were the best scones they had ever tasted. I also added the zest of one lemon to the dry ingredients. After removing from the oven, I lightly drizzled a glaze with one cup of powdered sugar and the juice of one lemon. Delicious! Read More

Very tasty scones. I didn't realize I only had a half a cup of blueberries so I used those and a 1/2 a cup of strawberries. Also I would suggest kneading the dough before you add the fruit. It smooshed all the berries. In the future I would fold them in carefully after kneading. Read More

I took tips from the 2 previous reviews. I added 1 egg and zest from 1 lemon. They came out great and not too sweet. You can increase sweetness if needed by adding more sugar. Read More

Made to many changes, added Oatmeal, lemon juice, sliced almonds. Then made lemon sugar icing. We loved them, it became a, Lemon, Blueberry, Oatmeal, Almond scone with icing on it. Used frozen blueberries, that was a mess. Blueberries not frozen would be best. Read More

This recipe made very good scones. The dough was a little dry at first so I added more buttermilk to get it to the right consistency. The scones came out just as I like them, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Will definitely be making again, perhaps with a different fruit. Read More

I substituted the blueberries for poppy and orange because the blueberries were moldy! Read More
