Blueberry Scones

Blueberry season is here and will soon be leaving us come Mid July. There are so many ways with the blueberries but aside from just snacking on them I love them in scones! One of my favorite pastries to have with my Ice Chai is the scone, almost any way I can get it.  This is an excellent recipe, as the inside was so tender with a nice crunchy outter layer.  I got this recipe from Recipe   Zaar. You can find more recipes on my web site for a variety of scones from Coffee House,  my own creation of the Apple Pie scone, my personal favorite Strawberry Scone and  Sour Cream Scones.
