Blueberry Scones

Healthier scones from Miraval Resort & Spa's Executive Chef, Chad Luethje.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ ounce butter
  • ½ cup non-fat milk
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup ground pecans

Directions

Combine the flours and sugar in a medium bowl. Cut in cold butter with a pastry knife until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Add the blueberries to the flour mixture. Then add the milk, egg, and vanilla. Mix until the batter comes together. Form the dough into a ball and transfer to a lightly oiled sheet pan. Pat the ball into a round and score into 12 wedges.

Sprinkle with pecans and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and springs back when touched in the center.

Blueberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Blueberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
