Blueberry Lemon Scones

Makes: about 12 scones

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup butter, cold & cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
    • Tip: don’t freeze blueberries wet- if you wash them before freezing, make sure they’re totatlly dry before freezing or else you’ll have a bluberry brick.
  • 2 tbsp of melted butter
  • coarse sugar to sprinkle on top
  • icing if desired

Preheat oven to 400 degrees & put baking rack in center of oven.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper & set aside.

  • In a large bowl mix dry ingredients until well combined.
  • Add cubes of butter & using your fingers or a pastry cutter gently work the butter into the dry ingredients.
    • You want there to be pea-sized pieces of butter remaining
  • In a seperate bowl add the sour cream, heavy cream, egg, vanilla, & lemon zest. Whisk until smooth.
  • Drizzle wet ingredients over dry ingredients. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry.
  • When the dough is combined dump it out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup blueberries over the dough and gently fold the dough over itself. Repeat this process 3 more times until all the blueberries are evenly incorporated in the dough.
  • Form the dough into a circle that is 1 inch thick.
  • Cut the dough into about 12 equal slices & place them onto your prepared cookie sheets.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the scones with the melted butter & sprinkle the coarse sugar over top.
  • Bake 18-23 minutes or until golden brown; you want the top of the scones to “spring back” when you touch them.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes & then add icing if desire.

Serve and Enjoy!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hello everyone and welcome to our first post!

Breast cancer awareness is very important to our family, Lisa my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in October of 2010. Lisa was a rare case for the hospital were she received treatments because she did not just have breast cancer, she also has cerebral palsy. At the time of Lisa’s diagnosis we had also just gone through the process of adopting my two younger siblings so this was an extraordinarily tough time for our family. Every one pitched in and pulled their own weight to make sure the little ones were taken care of and that my mother was doing well. She sure was a fighter! This October is also particularly important because it marks Lisa’s 5 year remission!! In honor of Lisa and everyone else who has been affected by this horrible disease we have decided to donate $2 for every order that is $19 and under and $5 for every order that is $20 and more! Please join us in this donation and feel free to comment on your experiences.
