Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 6 -8 scones

Ingredients

2 cups / 250 g flour
1/2 cup / 50 g sugar
4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup / 110 g shortening or butter
1 egg and enough milk to make 3/4 cup
1 Cup Frozen Blueberries

Instructions

Preheat oven 425 F / Gas 7 / 220 C.

1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a bowl.

2. Add shortening or butter and mix in a processor on 'pulse' or rub together with your finger tips until it looks like a crumble / bread crumbs.

3. Break an egg in a measuring cup and add milk until the 3/4 cup mark and lightly beat with a fork.

4. Add the egg/milk mixtures to the dry ingredients and mix just until well combined.

5. Do not over mix. Then add the blueberries.

6. After this just place spoonfuls in a baking sheet, or place the dough in between 2 sheets of parchment and roll out then cut into shapes, and bake for approximately 15 minutes.

Tip: I used butter once because I did not have shortening and the results are similar however they kind of "melted" more when they cooked. The ones with shortening keep a better shape. However if you don't have shortening do not be afraid to use butter.

Keep on eye on them because depending on the size you make the may cook quicker. Also leave some space in between because the grow.
Serve them plain, or with butter or jam or clotted cream.
