Monday, September 28, 2009 Jumbo Blueberry Sour Cream Scones

You'll notice that I get a lot of my recipes from Kittencal @ recipezaar. She's amazing, as are her recipes. This one is no exception.

1 cup sour cream
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (or use 1 teaspoon vanilla)
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups all-purpose flour (measured 4 cups exactly)
1 cup sugar (can use a few tablespoons more)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder (or use 2 semi-heaping teaspoons)
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1 cup very cold butter (cut into small cubes)
1 cup fresh blueberries
vanilla glaze (optional)

Set oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.

In a small bowl blend the sour cream with the egg, vanilla and baking soda; set aside while making the rest of the recipe.

In a large bowl mix together the flour with sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, salt and cinnamon (if using). Using a pastry blender cut in cold butter cubes. Add in the sour cream mixture; mix JUST until moistened. Gently mix in the fresh blueberries.

Roll or pat the dough into about a 1 to 1-1/2-inch thick round. Cut dough into 12 even wedges. Place the wedges onto the prepeared baking sheet about 2-inches apart.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the the bottoms are browned.

Drizzle the top of each warm scone with glaze if desired or when the scones are cooled dust lightly with confectioners sugar.
