Bakery Style Blueberry Scones

The Craving That Consumed Me

You know those moments when you just need to bake something, like, right now? Not want – need. That’s exactly how I was feeling the other day. It was a craving that consumed me, one that could only be satisfied by the warm, flaky perfection of a bakery-style blueberry scone.

I’m usually more of a meal recipe kind of gal these days, but sometimes the siren call of baking is just too strong to ignore. And that’s precisely what happened to me last week. I was scrolling through Pinterest, trying to find the perfect Valentine’s Day craft ideas (because apparently that’s the kind of thing I’m into now), when suddenly, all I could think about were these buttery, sugar-crusted scones, studded with juicy blueberries.

Baker by Nature described them so perfectly – “crunchy sugar on top” that “screams LOVE ME” and the idea of “breakfast in bed but with 87 scones instead of Real Breakfast.” Ummm, yes please! That’s exactly the kind of romantic, carb-loaded experience I needed.

So, instead of hand-sewing heart-shaped tea bags or leaving a trail of flour hearts leading to a bouquet of cake pops (which, let’s be honest, would have been a disaster), I decided to take matters into my own hands and master the art of the bakery-style blueberry scone. And let me tell you, it was a journey, but one that was 100% worth it.

The Quest for Bakery-Worthy Scones

Now, I consider myself a pretty decent baker, but scones have always been one of those things that intimidate me a little. They can be so finicky, with their delicate texture and the need to handle the dough just so. But I was determined to conquer the scone, and I was determined to do it in a way that would rival the ones sold at my favorite local bakery.

The Beard and The Baker had some great tips that I leaned on heavily. Things like using cold butter, being really gentle with the dough, and pulling the scones apart on the baking sheet to get that signature bakery look. I also took a cue from Pinch of Yum and brushed the tops with heavy cream before baking – what a game-changer!

And of course, I couldn’t forget the most important part: the blueberries. I wanted these scones to be absolutely bursting with juicy, sweet blueberry goodness. Sally’s Baking Addiction had some great advice on how to prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom and turning the whole thing into a giant blueberry muffin (which, don’t get me wrong, is delicious, but not quite what I was going for here).

After a few rounds of trial and error, I finally landed on a recipe and technique that I was confident would deliver those bakery-worthy scones I was craving. And let me tell you, the results were nothing short of phenomenal.

The Bakery-Style Blueberry Scone Perfection

These scones turned out absolutely amazing – incredibly light and flaky, with a crisp, sugary top that crackles as you bite into it. And the blueberries? Perfectly sweet and juicy, dotting every inch of the dough. I may or may not have eaten way more than my fair share, but honestly, I regret nothing.

The secret, I think, is in the technique. By handling the dough gently, using cold ingredients, and pulling the scones apart on the baking sheet, you end up with that signature bakery-style look and texture. And of course, that cream wash before baking adds an extra layer of richness and golden-brown perfection.

Paired with a hot cup of coffee (maybe even in a cheesy, cracked Valentine’s Day mug if I’m feeling fancy), these scones are the ultimate indulgence. They’re the kind of thing that make you want to curl up on the couch in your comfiest sweatpants and just savor every single bite.

So, if you’re ever in the mood for a little bakery-style blueberry scone action, I highly recommend giving this recipe a try. Trust me, your taste buds (and your inner baking enthusiast) will thank you. And who knows, maybe you’ll even be inspired to ditch the Pinterest crafts and treat yourself to a scone-filled Valentine’s Day instead. After all, what’s more romantic than breakfast in bed… with 87 scones?
