¼ tsp 1 mL salt
½ cup 125 mL cold butter, cut into small pieces
¾ cup 175 mL milk
1 egg
1 tsp 5 mL vanilla extract
1 cup 250 mL dried blueberries

Topping

1 tbsp 15 mL milk
¼ cup 50 mL SUGAR IN THE RAW® Natural Turbinado Sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

  5. Cut dough into 8 slices.
  6. Place dough on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Bake in preheated oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes until scones are lightly golden.  Place on wire cooling rack. Serve warm or room temperature.

Tips
