Crazy creepy and blueberry scones

I got dragged down to the woods this morning by Bodhi to go on an adventure. Wellies on and we were on a mission to find the ‘cabin’ otherwise known as the ‘creepy cabin’ at the side of the creek.

We paddled a short way down the rather stinky creek and there it was….the creepy cabin, complete with a brown and crispy Christmas wreath.

‘Chicken Mushroom’ – edible, but not eaten, well not by us anyway

Blueberry Scones

But, before all of the adventuring, I made some scones!

Blueberry Scones

3/4 cup heavy cream                                                                                                                                                                                                                 1 egg                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 2 teaspoons vanilla extract                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        2 cups all purpose/plain flour                                                                                                                                                                                                   1/4 cup sugar                                                                                                                                                                                                                               2 teaspoons baking powder                                                                                                                                                                                                       6 tablespoons butter  (cold and in small pieces)                                                                                                                                                                                                   1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen – don’t defrost frozen)

Preheat oven to 400F.  Whisk together cream, egg and vanilla.  In a large bowl mix flour,  baking powder and sugar.  ‘Rub in’ the butter to the dry ingredients.  Add the blueberries.

With a fork, mix the cream mixture into the dry until just combined – be careful not to squish the blueberries.

Knead the dough together and make a 6 inch circle.  Cut into 6 wedges and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.

Brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 16-18 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through cooking.

Cool and eat, if you can wait, otherwise cool a little bit, then eat!
