So what goes best with Jane Austen novels and films?
And what goes with tea?
These come from my sister blog MysteriousEats.wordpress.com.
- 1 3/4 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
- 2 Tablespoons of Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
- 4 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter, sliced into pats
- 1/2 Cup of Dried Blueberries
- 5 Tablespoons of Milk
- 2 Eggs, one for the batter and one to brush the tops
- Sugar to sprinkle (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.
- Rub in the butter with your fingers until it’s all worked in.
- Mix in the dried blueberries.
- In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk the milk and one egg together.
- Pour the milk mixture in with the dry and gently mix until the liquid is fully incorporated.
- Transfer dough to lightly floured surface. Knead the dough a few times and pat it into a disc about 3/4″ thick.
- Slice the dough into 8 equal wedges, and transfer the wedges to the prepared baking sheet, leaving spaces between each scone.
- Brush with egg and sprinkle with sugar (if you so desire).
- Bake the scones for 15-20 mins or until the tops are lightly browned.
- Serve warm with butter or clotted cream.
Thoughts After Baking:

Delicious! And perfect for tea time!
