Can I Make "Blueberry Scones"?
Updated: Aug 24
I had been looking to make scones for Afternoon Tea Week! These Blueberry Scones from Sandra Lee on the Food Network app looked really good and they didn't have any heavy cream in them either! Also, instead of flour, they use Bisquick, which was handy because I have some.
I think heavy cream is fine and if I order a cream sauce in a restaurant or a scone, I know it has heavy cream. When I cook for myself, I try to make some healthier substitutes if it doesn't impact taste that much to me.
I just made a half-batch, but I made it twice you'll see. Haha! :)
Afternoon Tea Week
What I used:
- Almond Milk
- 1 egg
- Frozen blueberries
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
Bisquick already has leavening agents in it, so there was no baking powder or baking soda used.
I mixed the dry ingredients and butter together. Then I mixed the egg and milk together. The batch did look a little wet to me. Maybe I didn't measure enough dry ingredients.
I forgot to shape them like scones. So then I tried to take them out after 1 minute and shape them more like triangles. Mess! Then I forgot about them, haha! So they got burned.
RESULT: Success < Fail.
We are good at this. < We are good at this? Tasted good even being burnt. Haha! :) This was the least burnt one. Haha! :)
I decided to redo it and this dough looked better and less wet. Guess I measured correctly this time. Haha! :)
Then I cut them into triangles, more scone like!
But how would they bake? I actually made these in my toaster oven!
We are good at this! Look at these scones! So light and good! Another benefit of this recipe is that you don't have to chill the dough, so it's really quick. You just make the dough and then you bake it.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
