I know you guys love scones, and so do I so that’s great. I thought about writing this recipe before summer’s end for you to know how to enjoy blueberry scones a little longer. With this scones’ recipe Summer can last all year long because you don’t need fresh blueberries or to use frozen blueberries like for my Low-fat Blueberry Cake. Because it’s made with blueberry yogurt.

Why I Chose Blueberry Yogurt

Blueberry yogurt is a great way to have a scone fluffy and crunchy. As yogurts are usually a little thick but not too much, a little liquid but not too much, it is perfect. It is a balance between milk and fresh cream (very thick cream) usually used for scones, but not often in the same time in a recipe. For these scones you don’t have to choose between the two, you can have both thanks to the yogurt. And of course if you want a blueberry scone, it’s best to use a blueberry yogurt 😉 We usually see scones with blueberries in it, I wanted to change that a little and that’s how I came to this recipe.

Blueberry Scone

The recipe is pretty easy if you are familiar with scones making:

Flour + Baking powder

Cold butter (don’t have to be frozen cold) rubbed in the flour mix

Incorporate the liquid ingredient and mix with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula

For the shape of the scones, as I wanted only two, I chose to make a rectangle and then cut in half. I think it is the easiest way to have two beautiful rising scones as the contact between them helps them rise but feel free to use the technique you prefer.

Don’t forget to fold your rectangle a few times before your final rectangle shape, to create layers and have flaky scones. That’s what we all want, don’t we?
