To some people food is merely the means to gain energy to get through day, to others it is something that is hard to come by, while for others still it is much more. It is healing, it is comforting, and food can trigger memories of childhood or first dates or holiday times. I love food. I love food for all those reasons listed above and it is my life goal to provide food for people who cannot provide it for themselves. I am currently a culinary arts student at the Art Institute of Jacksonville and I am one of three meal supervisors at the Sulzbacher Center, which is a homeless shelter that prepares and serves over 1200 meals a day.
sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl
add granulated sugar and zest
mix the butter into the sifted mixture by hand with your fingertips careful to not over mix, there should be pea sized chunks of butter left and some smaller
carefully fold in blueberries and white chocolate chips, if you don’t like biting into whole blueberries then squish them a bit in a separate bowl with a fork before folding in. i personally love the texture it adds when the fruit are kept whole and if you do squish them your scones will be purple!
pour out onto plastic wrap and form into a square, place into your fridge for at least 20 minutes, letting the dough rest
after your dough has chilled cut the dough in half and form into two smaller squares
cut each square into 4 triangles by making two cuts from corner to corner as shown making 8 total scones, you can cut in each one in half to make smaller bite sized scones for a party or other special occasion.
place on a parchment lined, nonstick, or sprayed sheet pan leaving about 2 inches between each scone, brush the top of each scone lightly with heavy creambake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until scones are firm to the touch when pressed lightly, scones should only be golden brown on the bottom.
