The things are just scrumptious! I have made them twice in the last week and a half and they don't last longer than 24 hours :P Partially because it does't make an extremely large batch and I live with a family. But mostly because they end up in the mouth of the cook! ;)
- 1 cup of blueberries (I use frozen and they work just fine)
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- Dash of salt
- 1 stick of butter
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 large orange, juiced and zested
- 2 cups powdered sugar
Melt the butter in a small bowl. Add the orange juice and zest. Stir in the powdered sugar, portions at a time to make sure it dissolves.
The little bits of orange zest add just the right "pop" to the sweetness.
I was taking these on a morning before I left for college. (Only two full weeks left! Woot!) So I was a tad rushed after taking pictures and didn't even get to drink the tea. Oh, well, it would have probably been cold and way too strong from steeping the whole time I took pictures. But I ate plenty of scones, of course, before heading off to school. :D
So, I must admit that it took me by surprise when I picked up my camera and started taking pictures. I thought to myself, "Hey, I like the sound of the shutter!" as if I had forgot what it sounded like. Then I chided myself for not taking pictures for such a long time... or blogging. :P I've had some people remind me that I haven't blogged since the 7th of this month, lol.
Well... delicious stuff.
Guess what? You should make them! So we can share the love of them :)
