I am so excited to share with you my very first post as one of the members of Craftaholics Anonymous® 2015 Creative Team. If you’ve stopped by my blog, Honey and Birch, you probably noticed that I share a lot of recipes with my readers. There are a few fun crafts there as well, but I am a food blogger through and through.

That being said, I’m looking forward to sharing some delicious and easy recipes with you over the next 12 months.

 

Deciding on recipe #1 was no easy task – in fact, this is the third recipe I developed for this post. It was very important to me that I got it right. :) I settled on an easy recipe for Blueberry Chocolate Scones.

 

Blueberry Chocolate Scones

 

In winter, I love to curl up with a cup of tea and a scone, fresh out of the oven. This scone recipe can be made with either milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips – perfect if you like your baked goods a little sweeter.

 

If you have never made scones before, they can be a little intimidating but I have a few tips for you.

 

  • Normally when I bake I use butter and eggs at room temperature. For scones, however,  they need to be cold.
  • When mixing your batter, its important not to over mix because you want your ingredients to go in the oven cold.
  • It’s important to liberally flour not only the surface you will be forming the dough, but also your hands and your knife. The flour will prevent the dough from sticking to everything.

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt with a whisk. Using a pastry blender (or two knives,) add the butter to the dry ingredients. Cut it into the flour until it is pea sized.

Add the berries and chocolate chips with a wooden spoon. The stir in the remaining ingredients with the wooden spoon until the mixture is wet.

Flour your surface, then pour the dough on top of the flour. Flour your hands and pat the dough into a round circle about 1 inch high. If the dough sticks to your hands or the surface, add more flour.

Cut the dough in to 8 triangles for large scones or 16 for medium scones. Pictured are large scones. Place on the prepared baking sheet and put in the oven.

Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the scone edges begin to brown. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool before eating.
