Blueberry Strudel Scones
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup cold butter cut into chunks
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Cut in the chunks of butter with a pastry knife (I don't have one so I used 2 knives). It should be crumbly in texture. Gently fold in the blueberries. In a measuring cup mix together the egg, milk and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and with a fork combine just until it forms a dough. You don't want to over mix it because you are going to turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it 5 or 6 times to incorporate everything.
Cut it in half, then half again and so on until you get 8 triangles.
I had some fresh blueberries kickin it in the fridge that just didnt make it into cererals or oatmeal. I wanted something different than a muffin and I had never made scones before....so this was the first attempt and have to say they turned out fantastic!
