I was quite pleased with how this turned out! This was my first attempt at scones. I had a carton of blueberries I needed to use, so I found this recipe and gave it a go. I found it easy to carry out, and the result was a dozen blueberry scones that were moist, fluffy, and not too sweet. I followed the recipe to the letter. Some tips: * The dough will be very wet and sticky. It will look more like a thick batter than dough. * After I mixed the wet ingredients into the dry,I tipped it out onto a floured work surface, and floured my hands well to handle it. * I didn't really knead it per se, I just patted it into a ball and then pinched that ball into 2 smaller ones. Then I patted both small balls into thick disks and cut them into 6 wedges. * Some dough did end up sticking to my hands, but I worked quickly and lightly, and it wasn't a big deal. * I placed each wedge by hand onto a piece of parchment paper on the cookie sheet. Et voila! 20 minutes later, I have warm, lovely scones! Side note: I have looked around online at other scone recipes, and I saw a highly rated one from a certain blonde, bespectacled Food Network chef that is very similar to this recipe. The differences are that his uses a combination of butter and shortening instead of only butter as this one does, and he uses slightly less sugar, and a touch more baking powder.
