  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries rinsed and dried
  • ½ cup cold butter cubed
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • cup heavy cream plus additional to brush tops
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • Glaze: (optional)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract optional


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet or two standard size, with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • To make scones: In a medium-size mixing bowl using a whisk sift together the 2 ¼ cups flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. In a separate small bowl, toss blueberries with 1 teaspoon flour, set aside.
  • Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut butter into dry ingredients until it resembles cornmeal. Add blueberries, mixing until evenly distributed. Make a well in the center.
  • Whisk together sour cream. heavy cream, egg, and vanilla. Gradually mix into dry ingredients until fully moistened.
  • Turn the dough out onto a non stick lightly floured surface. Turn it a few times to coat with flour to help with the stickiness. Do not overwork the dough. Pat the dough into an 8 inch circle that is about 1 inch thick.
  • Use a sharp knife dipped in flour to cut dough into wedges. Brush tops with cream and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • To make glaze: Mix together powdered sugar, cream and vanilla. May add additional heavy cream until desired consistency. Drizzle over warm scones just before serving, if desired.
  • Serve warm with fresh whipped cream and lemon curd or jam.
