Blueberry Scones

 
I lived near the town of Skaneateles, New York for some time.  It is such a cute and charming town with the main street lined with shops and restaurants.  Summers were especially fun there on Skaneateles Lake.  I have a lot of fond memories of that town including where I first fell in love with scones.
 
I remember the first time I walked into Patisserie in Skaneateles and saw all the delicious baked goods and breads.  I was just passing through town and I grabbed a scone for the road.  On my journey home I enjoyed this delicious blueberry scone.   

While I was still living in the area I would go there frequently to enjoy their scones and other fabulous treats.  They also had a  focaccia bread that was to amazing.

I haven’t been to Skaneateles in nearly seven years but since then I have a love for scones and a reminder of that lovely place.


I often make a batch of scones and keep a batch in the freezer to have for last minute guests or just if I am in the mood for a scone.  I had a batch of the Cranberry Almond Scones in the freezer for some time and recently just served my last one.  It was time to whip up another batch to freeze and for this batch I made these.  This recipe is quite similar to my Cranberry Almond Scones.   These are puffy and delicious and perfect with a hot cup of tea or coffee.

  1. I place my in freezer bags or in an airtight freezer container. Then I just pull how many I need and defrost them on the counter or if in a hurry for a few seconds in the microwave. They taste just like they came right out of the oven! Enjoy!
