:::Blueberry Scones:::

If my dream of owning a little farm 
with a bed and breakfast on it 
ever comes true...
these scones WILL be on the breakfast menu. :-)

Blueberry Scones
makes 6 large scones

2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 cup butter
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup blueberries
extra butter and sugar for topping

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.  Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and orange zest.  Cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.  Add buttermilk and blueberries all at once and stir gently just until combined.  Dust counter with flour and turn out dough.  Shape dough into a circular disk and cut into six wedges.  Place wedges on baking sheet, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake 30 minutes or until scones are lightly browned.  Serve immediately and enjoy!
