Mine was spent with all of the above! Plus a little bit of eye trouble that left me with an irritated eye and a small break from my contacts.

I was like Bob Costas at the Olympics last summer.

Plus, driving in glasses after driving for years in contacts? A very, very different experience. I was like a student driver all over again, looking over my shoulder 12 times before lane changing, certain my glasses were blocking my periphs (aka peripherals) and that I was going to take out some poor, unsuspecting car.

I didn’t. And my eye is better. I’m stronger for it.

And then rolling them around in sugar and cream for good measure.

Just kidding. I mean, yes, the blueberries in these scones are surrounded by cream and sugar, but this recipe was made a bit ago for my sister’s baby shower, but this weekend, I made a solid effort to eat the blueberries plain.

And then washed them down with the pirate cupcakes I made for my nephew’s first birthday party, where he was dressed as the cutest pirate in the history of pirates!

Balance, right?

Ingredients

    Scones
  • 2 cups + 2 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and cold
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, plus more for brushing
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • Almond Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 1-3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • Topping
  • Sliced Almonds

Instructions

    Scones
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix together flour, white sugar, baking powder, and salt. Once combined, cut in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Whisk together heavy cream, sour cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
  4. Stir in the blueberries, and mix until just combined.
  5. On a well-floured surface, turn out the scone dough and pat into a small square that's about a 1/2" thick. Cut the rectangle in 9 even squares, then cut each square diagonally, leaving you with 18 mini scones. Transfer to the baking sheet. Brush each scone with just a bit of heavy cream.
  6. Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until just golden brown. Allow to cool.
  7. Glaze
  8. Whisk together powdered sugar, almond extract, and 1 Tbsp of heavy cream. If the glaze is too thick, continue adding in heavy cream, one 1 Tbsp at a time, until it has reached the desired consistency. Pour over warm scones, top with sliced almonds, and enjoy!

    Hope your eye is better, Michelle! I had horrible problems with my contacts and glasses last year because of my left eye..something scratched it and I was devastated because I had to wear my glasses in public! Anyways, these scones look amazing! Mini foods always seem to taste better, especially ones that involve blueberries and almonds! Yum!

    I’m afraid to drive with glasses on because it feels like you don’t have peripheral vision! Hope your eye is feeling better, stuff like that is such a pain. These scones look so delicious, I love the almond and blueberry combination!

    I’m glad your eye is feeling better! That doesn’t sound fun!

    These scones look perfect – I love that you used almond extract – I could sniff that stuff all day long! haha
