This is the only blueberry scone recipe you’ll ever need, and is perfect for enjoying during cold weather paired with coffee or tea. I’ve adapted Ina Garten’s strawberry scone recipe and think you will love this only slightly sweetened traditional scone recipe with wild blueberries instead of dried strawberries, and topped with sprinkled sugar.

You’ll simply need flour, unsalted butter, sugar, baking powder, salt, cream, eggs and wild blueberries. I like to purchase my organic wild blueberries in the frozen section of Trader Joes. Don’t thaw your blueberries, keep them frozen up until the moment you add a tablespoon of four to them and then add into the mixture. This helps to keep the batter from turning completely blue.

Blueberry Scone Ingredients

Basic Baking Ingredients including all purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and unsalted butter. 

Cream is an essential ingredient for this style scone. Make sure that the cream is chilled and cold for this recipe. 

Eggs are needed for both the dough and the egg wash. 

Frozen Wild Blueberries are the star of these scones! They are a great source of antioxidants and have wonderful flavor.

How To Make Blueberry Scones

To make the scones, first preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  you will need an electric mixer like a kitchen aid.

First, add the dry ingredients which include flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, to your large mixing bowl.

Next, Mix in the cold unsalted butter cubes until dough forms pea sized pieces. Combine cold cream and egg mixture. Add to the bowl and mix until a sticky dough forms.

Remove bowl from mixer stand. Mix together frozen berries with a tablespoon of flour and add blueberries to scone dough. Stir in blueberries gently to avoid smooshing the blueberries and turning the batter too blue. Gently fold in the blueberries using a spatula.

Finally, Place dough on a floured surface and roll the dough to be about 3/4 inch thick. Cut scones into triangles  and place on parchment lined baking sheet, or if you have scone pans, cut dough triangles to fit into the lightly greased scone pans.

For the egg wash, mix egg and 2 tablespoons milk in a small bowl. Brush the tops of the scones with egg wash and sprinkle generously with sugar. I like to use organic raw sugar that has a courser texture. 

Bake 20-25 minutes until tops start browning and the inside of the scones are fully baked.  Recipe makes about 16 scones.
