Blueberry Scones

I made these a few days ago and they were DELICIOUS! I am already thinking of the variations I will try next... Ginger and Cranberries, Lemon and Raspberry.... oh the possibilities!

Blueberry Scones

1 cup white flour
1 cup wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tea baking powder
1/2 tea salt
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup + 1 TB Buttermilk
1/2 tea vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup blueberries

1 beaten egg plus cinnamon sugar for topping.

Cut the butter into the dry stuff, until you have a grainy looking mixture, mix it well. Beat the buttermilk, eggs and vanilla together and pour into the dry stuff. Add the blueberries and mix until just combined (do not overmix). Turn the dough onto a floured surface and shape into a long rectangle, about 4 inches wide. Using a brush, lightly coat the top with the egg wash, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Using a sharp knife cut into triangles/quadrangles/trapezoids/whatever. (I think I made 8) Spread out on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
