Dad asked….

Good Morning Party People!

Let’s get this Monday started with a brand new recipe


My dad’s been asking for scones…more specifically blueberry scones. I didn’t have blueberries on hand, but I had some frozen blackberries. I found this great scone recipe from Created by Diane.


Yields 10 scones

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes



3 cups flour

1/3 cup sugar

2.5 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup butter

pinch of cinnamon

1 cup butter milk

1 cup blackberries

Egg whites*



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease cookie sheet.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and butter.

Add cinnamon and buttermilk.

Knead the batter and add in blackberries. Do not mix with a mixer!! (I made this mistake the first time) Use flour to help, because it will be sticky!

Form into triangles or whatever shape you like. I did circles like biscuits, it was easier!

Brush tops with egg whites.

Bake for 15 minutes.


Dad approved. They may not look picture perfect, but if they are yummy that’s a plus in my book!!

When was the last time you failed at a recipe? 

Do you like scones? If so, what kind?

Xo, Tara
