How to make blueberry scones
Recipe adapted from Cooking Light:
1/2 cup 2% reduced fat milk
1/4 cup sugar (Monk Fruit)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 cups all-purpose flour (about 9 ounces)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
To brush over scones:
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons sugar ( I used turbinado sugar-natural brown sugar)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cut butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. I usually start out using a pastry cutter then end up using my hands to combine the butter with the flour mixture. Add milk mixture, stirring until moist. Warning: The dough will be really sticky especially if you’re using fresh blueberries that have just been rinsed. That little bit of extra water on the blueberries adds to the stickiness.
