Have you seen Thoroughly Modern Millie with Julie Andrews? If you can handle musicals or love Julie Andrews it’s a must! I love the character Muzzy. It seems her favorite phrase is “raspberries”! Maybe she’s rubbing off  on me after the hundreds of views I’ve sat through…

On to the blueberries!

My second post in two days! Can you believe it? Neither can I! Last week at the farmers market I impulsed purchased a lovely crate of blueberries, much like the lemon I thought get now figure things out later. Do you see a pattern in my shopping?

Armed with my blueberries I set out to find a recipe. I’d been eyeing scones and thought why not? I came across this recipe from latabledenana and got started.

This recipe was simple and easy peasy. Now I don’t know that much about scones. Weather there are scone faux pas or not, but I deviated from the recipe a little bit. I added almonds,^^^ a 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract and a little more sugar than the recipe called for. (The extra sugar and extracts are where I think the faux pas may come in…)

The thing I really liked about this recipe is that you pretty much just throw everything into the bowl and mix it up!

Dough all patted out and ready to be cut. Do NOT be fooled my this innocent picture, the dough is a bit sticky my hands were not so neat 🙂

All done!

*A note on the questionable extra sugar. If you like to eat your scones with jam or something of the like I think these are perfect the way they are. If you are going to eat them on their lonesome I would add just a bit more sugar. Even with the extra sugar I added they seemed a touch on the savory side to me but were still great!

The day I made these scones a lovely baker’s twine (named blueberry!) I’d ordered arrived! I think I’ve caught the Navy (color) bug and with all this blue around I ended up making some lovely little watercolor gift tags ^__^

What do think? They came out so moody (in a good way!). I think I’m smitten

I also made some sweet pale pink tags among other projects. They’re all up in the shop 🙂

Happy Sunday!
