I don't know about you, but there is nothing better than baking with seasonal fruit. And now in Ontario we have great tasting blueberries. So, I decided to put them into my favourite scones. They're sooo delicious!!! Go ahead and Bake My Day!!!

Blueberry Scones



Ingredients:

1 cup sour cream
1 tsp baking soda
4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
zest of lemon
1 cup blueberries 
1 cup (226g) unsalted butter
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt



Directions:


Preheat oven to 350F

Add sour cream to a bowl and mix in the baking soda. Set aside.

Using a whisk, combine flour, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Cut in the butter using a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.

Add the vanilla to the egg and beat slightly. Add to the flour mixture as well as the sour cream and mix well.
Carefully add the blueberries. 
Flatten dough with hands and cut out rounds using a biscuit cutter. Make sure to flour the cutter for easy release of rounds.

Place on lined cookie sheet and bake until golden ontop about 15-20 minutes.
