Blueberry Almond Scones

Sunday, October 2, 2016
Blueberry Almond Scones, are so easy to make and you don't even need to be a professional baker to make them they're seriously super simple!


I have made all kinds of flavored scones but since we are all big fans of blueberry anything (especially in the morning for breakfast) these are the most asked for and just perfect for folks with busy lifestyles for a fast grab and go.


These were getting so expensive in those favorite coffee shops I use to frequent, now I just make them myself and they are so much fresher and tailored exactly to what we all like in flavor or fruits.
.

A perfect buttery flaky treat chuck full of blueberries keeps me craving for more during that mid-morning snack.


The best part about this recipe is it's so basic you can add any fruits you like to the dough, just get creative and change it to whatever you like with the same measurement.








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!



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


Scones are a delicious British and American-style biscuit


The biggest difference between American Scones and British Scones is 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 are delicious, just different.

My American Version



I love Starbucks scones. Rich, buttery flavor, 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, chocolate chips, currents, raisins or even dried apricots.


Also if you're not a big icing fan, just serve them with clotted cream, jams, or butter.


Strawberries, mango, red raspberries, peaches, pears are all great substitions for blueberries also.

  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!
