blueberry scones

I am having this thing of wanting to try different Scone recipes and this is one I found over at Mennonite Girls Can Cook.
They have so many Yummy recipes and there is another Scone recipe they have that I want to try here soon. This one is so good, especially with the powdered sugar icing I added 


Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 tbsp butter, cold
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp orange or lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Method:
  1. Stir together all dry ingredients. Cut in cold butter until the butter is very small chunks.
  2. Stir together the apple sauce, zest and butter milk. Pour over dry mixture and stir with a fork just until it all comes together. Do no over mix scones.
  3. Using your hands, gently work the berries into the dough.
  4. Place mounds of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 375º for 12-15 minutes. Remove immediately to cooling rake. Best served warm. Add a dusting of powdered sugar for a finishing touch. Yields 8 large scones.
The icing was 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp. vanilla and Orange Juice
Add vanilla and 1 Tbsp OJ to sugar and mix and then add a tsp more OJ  until you get a thick, smooth mixture. Drizzle over the scones.  YUM YUM

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
