Did you know that a blueberry scone with your morning coffee contains more than 450 calories and an unhealthy dose of fat? Here's a much lighter blueberry scone, which is smaller but just as tantalizing. These scones are drop scones rather than wedges, which makes them the perfect size for a morning or afternoon treat.
These are best served warm.
- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- Line a large baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives until it resembles coarse crumbs.
- Add egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Stir with a fork until a dough forms. Fold in blueberries. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
