Blueberry Streusel Scones

In our CSA haul this week we received 2 pints of blueberries, so when I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest I knew had to give it a go.
They turned out delicious, and perfectly shaped thanks to my new Nordicware scone pan!
yield: 8 scones

for the scones
3C all-purpose flour
1/3C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
6 tablespoons butter, cold
1C fresh blueberries
1 egg, room temperature
1/2C milk
2 tsp vanilla

for the streusel topping
1/4C brown sugar
1/4C flour
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs butter, cold
1/4 tsp salt

  1. for the scones:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Work in butter with a pastry blender (or your CLEAN hands, which is what I did).
  4. Fold in blueberries.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together egg, milk, and vanilla.
  6. Pour them into the dry ingredients and combine with a fork, just until it forms a dough.
  7. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it until everything is combined.
  8. Roll the dough into a ball and press down.
  9. Cut dough into 8 slices and spread on a parchment paper baking sheet, or place into greased scone pan.
  10. Combine the ingredients for the streusel topping and sprinkle over the top of each scone, pressing down streusel topping into the dough slightly.
  11.  Bake for 20-24 minutes.
  12. Enjoy!
