On those mornings when I am I able to ease leisurely into the day, typically on the weekends, I look forward to a sweet treat that satiates my comfort tooth (Is that a word? Well, it is now.) and pairs beautifully with a hot cup of tea. Don’t you just love those moments of good nibbles, a favorite blend of tea (black tea infused with lavender is my favorite – this one in particular) and reading material to devour? Oh, and time or an ability to lose all track of it? A simple luxury indeed.
Well, such a morning occurred today, so as my way of welcoming the month of February, I stepped into the kitchen to make blueberry scones. Turns out, there’s a reason I don’t make them regularly . . . they’re melt-in-your mouth buttery, scrumptious, amazing. (As I type, I am nibbling on the last few bites from the photo shoot, drizzled in honey. Yum!) While I chose fresh blueberries, you can easily substitute a long list of alternatives – currants, candied ginger, almonds, berries of your choice, lemon zest, just to name a few ideas. In less than 35 minutes, you will have yourself a wonderful morning pastry, and an aroma wafting throughout the house that is sure to create the moment of relaxation and rest we all need from time to time.

  1. Lovely recipe Shannon but you’ve confused me utterly — you’ve called scones “scones”. I thought Americans called scones biscuits and what we call biscuits you called cookies? If a scone is now a scone then the world is upside down and you are now down under. 🙂

  2. I have made these several times because they are my husbands favorite Sunday morning breakfast. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
