These scones are lightly sweet and very moist with the tartness of frozen blueberries. Your food processor makes the task of cutting in butter super easy. You can freeze right before baking for a quick breakfast treat anytime. Even my one-year-old twins approve!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a food processor. Pulse to combine. Add frozen butter and process until a fine crumb results and no hunks of butter are left.
Transfer into the bowl of an electric stand mixer or a bowl for hand mixing. Add sour cream and egg. Set mixer on medium speed and blend until crumbs clump up and start to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Add blueberries and mix to combine.
Take 1/2 of the dough and place on a floured surface. Shape with your hands, pushing blueberries in if they fall out, into a 1/2-inch thick disc, about 8 inches in diameter. Cut into 8 triangles and transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Sprinkle a pinch of sugar on each scone.
Bake in the preheated oven until the tops start to turn golden, 17 to 22 minutes.

The quality of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always rise as well as white bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it night before , then finish it off the next day.
