On Bekah's 11th birthday, there was no cake. She was going to have a party on Sunday with her extended family, and special "hat" cupcakes were planned for that. But we wanted to sing "Happy Birthday" at our just-the-four-of-us celebration, and we needed something to put candles in, so we made the birthday girl's non-cake request...Blueberry Lemon Scones.
Who needs cake?!
2 cups all-purpose flour
I have also used this recipe to make Cranberry Orange Scones. (I substitute dried cranberries for the dried blueberries, and used orange juice and zest instead of lemon.) Then I received my May issue of Everyday Food this week, and there were some more scone ideas. We think that maybe we'll try Coconut Chocolate Chip Scones next.
Or maybe we shouldn't...
