I've been craving scones lately, so last night I got busy and made a batch.

This is the first time I used this recipe and they turned out great. The only thing I would do differently is add more blueberries.

1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 egg, beaten
1 cup blueberries, cranberries or whatever your heart desires. (Optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
2. In a small bowl, blend sour cream and baking soda. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, mix the: flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt. Cut in butter. Stir in sour cream mix and egg until just moistened. Stir in fruit. Don't stir too much or your scones will be tough.
4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. Pat dough into a 3/4 inch thick round and cut into 12 wedges. Place wedges onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
5. Bake 12-15 min until golden brown on bottom.
6. Serve warm with butter or with heavy cream.

I halved the dough and then cut each half into 12 wedges so I could have smaller scones. I love this recipe and will definitely use it from now on.
