Notes

 
BLUEBERRIES: use fresh or frozen. If frozen, do not thaw.
 
FROZEN BUTTER: When you cut the frozen butter into the dry ingredients you will create crumbs. These crumbs are essential to have scones with a flaky center while keeping the edges crumbly and crisp.
 
DON’T OVER-WORK SCONE DOUGH: It’s important to not overwork the dough and never roll it too thin, doing so will make the scone lose the flaky, moist, and delicious crumbly texture.
 
REFRIGERATE BEFORE BAKING: Keeping scone dough as cold as possible prevents over-spreading so don’t skip this step, please.
 
STORE: Leftover scones keep well at room temperature for 3 days or in the refrigerator for 5 days.
 
MAKE AHEAD: Prepare scones through step 5. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Continue with the recipe the following day.
 
FREEZE: Just follow these simple steps:
  • Freeze scone dough wedges or rounds on a plate or baking sheet for 1 hour or until relatively frozen,
  • Place them in a single layer in a freezer-friendly bag or container. Freeze for up to a month.
Ready to eat them? Bake from frozen, adding a few minutes to the bake time in the recipe below. Or thaw overnight, then bake as directed.
