Blueberry Almond Scones

Sunday, October 2, 2016

I love Blueberry Almond Scones , I have made all kinds that make me smile. These were another one of those combinations I had to try. I like the ease making them, not a cake, not a bread, not really a biscuit but close. A perfect biscuit/scone to start your day or mid morning snack with a good cup of Joe.


these are a delicious homemade buttery flavored baked biscuits called scones. These have blueberries in them with a drizzle of thin frosting over the top with slivered almonds. They are usually eaten at breakfast time in European pastry shops





Tender inside and sweet flavored!



These are a buttery tasting lovely pastry that goes good for breakfast, brunch or even a dessert.


The actual recipe is rich in buttery flavor because it has some heavy cream.


The denseness is still more like a pastry.


Whatever description I can give I can tell you this, these are worth making again and again and you will love them too!

They are usually eaten at breakfast time in European pastry shops. This is an American version of scones. These are made with almond milk and some heavy cream for a rich flaky texture.


Scones are a delicious British and American style biscuit


The biggest difference between American Scones and British Scones is the the ratio of fat.


American scones are very different as there is more butter to the ratio of flour in them.


British scones are slathered with butter after they are cooked and on top of the scone.


British scones rarely have any additional fruits in them, like blueberries.


If they add anything they would be raisins or currents in British scones.


The British scone is also not full of sugar as they slather jam on top just like the butter.


That is a little history between the two kinds made here in the United States and Britain.


Both delicious, just different.

My American Version



I love Starbucks scones. Rich, buttery flavored and I also love the lemon flavor.


I use this as a basic American scone version and added almond milk and almond flavoring this time.


If you would like a Starbucks version, add buttermilk and lemon extract for the liquid and flavoring.


You could also substitute dried fruits like cranberries, raisins or even dried apricots.

  7. What a lovely combination you have here with blueberry and almonds. Scones always bring lot of childhood memories as I read about it a lot in the British series Enid Blyton and dreamed about eating them some day. To this day, I remember the series when I bake scones. Lovely recipe and thanks for sharing!
