My family and I went out for a beautiful lunch overlooking the water. The waiter brought us the breadbasket containing the usual culprits: crusty warm bread, sweet croissants and corn muffins. But there on the side was the most unusual addition. It appeared to be a mini blueberry scone with a powdered sugar glaze served with jam on the side. I could not resist trying this little delight. I would just have one bite to try it out. Well, 2 scones later and they were all gone! So delicious that I had to come home and recreate this amazing treat. It took a couple of tries but the recipe below reminded me exactly of those amazing blueberry scones! Serve these up for breakfast, brunch or an afternoon tea! Whenever you choose to serve them, I guarantee they will be gone in a heartbeat!
