Our daughter Kalissa has been doing nursing clinicals . Her latest clinical rotation has been caring for people who have mental illness. Anyway it’s been a LONG rotation for her driving an hour there and back each day. One day she came home super happy. She had been to the bakery at the facility and had bought scones for us all. I know this is likely silly to many of you but we had never had scones. I had thought to make them to give them a try but I always thought they would be hard to make….WRONG!!
After Kalissa introduced us to scones I decided it was time to find a recipe and give them a try…and boy oh boy am I glad I did.
I started out by watching a couple youtube videos to learn the method but then went to the internet to find a recipe. I just wanted something basic and nothing fancy. I hate fancy recipes wanting ingredients that I don’t just have on hand so I often pass them up.
I ended up trying this recipe called Simple Scones. It had basic ingredients that I always have on hand. I added blueberries that were in the refrigerator that needed to get used up. My oh my..they are yummy. I will be making these again and again. Everyone was impressed with them…what’s not to love butter and sour cream all rolled up in one.
I did learn a few things. I’ll try to make a more defined edge…I’ll cut them in smaller pieces too. I love when I discover simple and easy recipes that are quick and that the family thinks is a treat!!

I love homemade scones. Found that if I studded the top with the berries or fruit, it was easier when using fresh fruit. I cut and bake and wow, love them warm.
