Blueberry Scones

How is your week coming along? For the most part, things are going well for me. Life is good. A few days ago, I made blueberry scones. This is something I wanted to do for a long time, but just now am getting around to doing it. Why? Simple, DH asked me to make a recipe he found online. It read totally doable for me and that’s the best kind to try. What surprised me the most was not the ease of making this recipe, but how delicious it turned out.

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • ½ - cup sugar
  • 1 - cup fresh blueberries
  • 1¼ - cup heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Gently stir in blueberries. Add the cream and mix together, gently, with a wooden spoon until just barely combined. Be careful not to over-mix.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured board or counter-top. Using your hands, gently pat the dough down into an 8-inch disk, about 3/4 inch thick. You can use the bottom of an 8- or 9-inch cake pan to help you press the dough down evenly if need be. Brush the top of the disk with a bit of cream and sprinkle with sugar. Cut dough into 8-12 triangles and arrange on an un-greased baking sheet, at least a half-inch from one another.
  • Place baking sheet on center rack in oven, and bake for 12-15 minutes until scones turn golden. Allow to cool on wire rack for about 10 minutes. Enjoy while still slightly warm.


This nearly effortless recipe with four straightforward ingredients is filled with a whole lot of goodness. All I can say is, YUM! From start to finish it took less than 30-minutes to savor the taste of hot scones with a steaming cup of coffee. What a purrrfect anytime combo!

Mid to late 70s rockin’ down the house on 4M

Welcome to week #168 of

A few weeks back Vandy J was our spotlight dancer. For her theme choice this week, she wants to know What songs did you listen to in high school? I don’t know about you guys, although that’s been a lot of years ago for me I still find myself boogieing to those same tunes today. Let’s rock the house down to some mid to late 70s sounds!

My freshman year 1976-1977 of high school, I was more than likely dancing to Paul McCartney and Grand Funk Railroad.



Our lovely hostesses, XmasDolly, would like to thank you for joining the party and as always JAmericanSpice, Stacy Uncorked, Just the stuff ya know & myself are happy that you came.

Now, it’s time to get our groove on with you so remember to link up and shake your bootie with the fellow rockin’ blogger buds below!

We aren’t music snobs if you have tunes to share that don’t fit in with our theme, then no problem! As long as you have music to share, then everything is cool coz all we want to do is dance with you! 

During my sophomore year from 1977-1978, I might have listened to songs by Andy Gibb and Lionel Richie.



As my sophomore year gave way to my junior year 1978-1979, these tunes were popular hits by ARS and the Queen of Disco.



Winding things up in 1979-1980 for my senior year, I can’t forget these fab hits by two outstanding female artists.
