Blueberry Scones

Can you believe I'd never made scones before? Frankly, neither can I. 

Blueberry Scones

200g self raising flour
50g butter, cold
125ml milk
25g caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
Good pinch salt
1 beaten egg, for brushing on top
100g blueberries

Preheat oven to 220C. 

Rub the butter into the flour. Stir in sugar, baking powder and salt. Add milk and slowly incorporate into a loose dough. As it starts to come together, add the blueberries. Don't over work the dough! Just bring it all together into a ball and knead very gently on a floured surface. Roll into an inch thick circle. Cut into rounds with a cutter if you have one - I didn't so I used a small glass. A good tip is to dip your cutter in flour to stop it sticking. Put your scones on a greased baking sheet or silpat. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden. Allow to cool on a rack. (We are impatient and didn't wait for them to cool so they kind of disintegrated as we cut them...but they were still yum)
