Blueberry Scones

  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 35m

Makes 8 scones


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup chilled margarine or butter
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk or yogurt
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 egg, beaten


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cornmeal and baking powder. Cut up the margarine or butter into 1/4-inch cubes and using your fingertips, squeeze the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a well-blended, mealy mixture.

Add the buttermilk or yogurt to the mixture. Add the blueberries, mixing to incorporate. The dough will be slightly sticky. If it is too sticky to handle, add a tablespoon of flour.

Divide the dough in half, shape into 1-inch-thick disks. Place on a buttered baking sheet. Brush with the beaten egg, then cut a deep X into the top of each scone. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
