Blueberry And White Chocolate Scones

Good morning, I hope everyone is doing better then I am! I am currently holed up on my couch. I managed to get a late afternoon appointment with my family doctor yesterday who confirmed my suspicion that I do in fact have bronchitis! Yuck! Definitely not how I planned on spending my weekend.

Anyways enough about me! On to the good stuff! Here is the recipe for the Blueberry white chocolate scones I mentioned in my last post. These are amazing and actually very pretty. Not very sweet but again the white chocolate helps in that area. I think they are fabulous with a little lemon curd.

Pinch of salt

Method
I did this in a food processor but feel free to do it by hand, or with a pastry cutter.

Place sugar, butter, flour, salt, baking soda in the bowl of the food processor and pulse until mixture resembles crumbs. Dump into large mixing bowl. Add blueberries, chocolate and lemon zest and gently toss the berries to coat in flour mixture.

In a smaller bowl mix together the milk, egg, lemon juice. Once mixed add to dry ingredients.

Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until mixture comes together nicely.

Turn out in lightly floured surface and kneed until dough forms. Do not overwork the dough. Form dough into round mound and then flatten out in a circle to about 3/4 to 1 inch thick.

Brush with buttermilk and sprinkle with sugar (I used vanilla sugar) if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for about 18-20 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
