Perfect blueberry scones!

This is what it's all about at our house on Sunday morning! The New York Times, a hot cup of strong coffee, and the perfect blueberry scone as made by my highly motivated wife. I blogged these same scones last year, but I know there's hordes....okay, tens....of new hungry readers of eat.drink.think. who need this in their culinary repertoire, so click here for the post with recipe. These are the best scones I've had.....period! The recipe is another winner from Cooks Illustrated, those persnickety recipe testers who print no recipe before they've done it a few dozen times. These bites of baked deliciousness are stellar. The texture is moist, cakey, and using fresh bluberries ensures that the stay whole and don't mush out like frozen berries do. Plus, with blueberries sure to be rolling out of your local farmers markets, the time is now!

I'm one of the tens of, well ten people who didn't get to read your first post on these beauties so your writing was not in vain. I'm such a scone-ivore so I look forward to trying your recipe! Thanks.

looks like I wasn't the only one baking scones. I used a recipe from Epicurious...could have doubled the amount of sugar (I like sweet things).

Yours look great!

metro-have fun u-picking...then you've really earned the full reward!

jeanine-it was so perfect. you need to do it...SOON!

colin's mom- I have a feeling these will satisfy your scone-ivorish desires. glad you got the recipe the 2nd time around!

bakingforthe cure- I'd overnight you one (no really, I would), but I just had the last one this morning!

olga- who DOESN'T like sweet things?! Only people who don't have a real understanding of life's pleasures, I think!

These are the BEST! I've been making these scones over the last year and everyone loves them. Grating the butter is a pain but it's worth it.

Wineguy,

I've just discovered this scone recipe and just love it! But I forgot to take a picture of it and was wondering if you would give me permission to use yours on my web page? I'd be happy to credit you and cross-link to your blog. You can see the page at http://www.dartmouth.edu/~patl/freshBlueberryScones.shtml

Please let me know if this is a problem and I will take down the picture right away, with apologies.

Regards,
PatL
