Tomorrow is my birthday! I am going to be 24. Every year for my birthday I do a birthday year goal list. It's a lot like new year's resolutions but, in my opinion, more challenging. This year my list includes 24 things to do before I turn 25. Starting tomorrow I will have a whole year to achieve my goals. Some are fun, some are hard, some will take a lot of time and some I could get done in an afternoon (I just never do, so it's going on the list). I just finished my birthday goal list while I was baking these (truly delicious) blueberry scones.
Ingredients: 2 cups flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon salt, 4 ounces of butter, 2 eggs (one for the batter one for the egg wash), 1/2 cup buttermilk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Oh-and blueberries! 1 cup please.
In a large mixing bowl mix together the dry ingredients, then with a pastry blender or your hands mash in the butter so that a fine grainy mixture forms. Stir in blueberries. In a small mixing bowl whisk together buttermilk, an egg and vanilla. Now combine the wet ingredients to the dry and mix together. Do not over mix, just stir together until batter barely clumps together.
Place batter on a lightly floured surface and knead together once so that the dough is fully formed. Mush into an elongated rectangle and cut into triangles (or squares or rhombus, whatever floats your boat). Place scones onto a greased baking sheet. Now whisk remaining egg in a small bowl and lightly coat scones with egg wash.
I wanted to do a give away for my birthday. And this will be my very first give away on this blog, so it's a historical moment as well:)
Tell me your favorite birthday memory in the comments below and you could win your very own set of cute cupcake liners from Bake it Pretty. I will choose the winner at random over the weekend. And this give away will close at midnight on my birthday (tomorrow, Jan 21st). Good Luck!
