The Easiest Blueberry Scones

I love baking for my family and friends. In fact, one of their favorite treats is always a part of the birthday gifts we give. When I first joined my husband’s family I met his grandmother Pat. She would quickly become a rock in my life and one of my closest friends. She was the first person to make me feel part of the family and call me her granddaughter.

Once, she told me a story about one of her and my husbands special traditions when he was growing up. Whenever he would spend the night they would go on a walk every morning and get doughnuts from Dunkin Doughnuts in Seattle. Every time, she would choose blueberry scone because they were her very favorite. We don’t have a Dunkin Doughnuts in my small hometown so I made it my mission to nail a scone recipe I could share with her. It took a couple of recipes, but I finaly found one that was perfect and tweaked it to make it my own.

These scones are super moist and the blueberries are a huge pop of fresh flavor. Grandma Pat was very impressed and I can’t wait to make them again for her! Homemade scones are pretty amazing, but finding somone like her is even better.
