Blueberry Scones Mix in a Jar


These are delicious warm from the oven with butter and jam; a perfect breakfast food. A jar of homemade blueberry jam would make a wonderful accompaniment to this.


  • 2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup vanilla sugar*
  • 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 cup dried blueberries


* To make vanilla sugar, fill a 1-quart jar with sugar. Split a vanilla bean in half lengthwise and add both halves to the sugar. Flavor gets better after a couple of weeks, and it will keep as long as regular sugar.

  1. Stir together flour, sugar, milk, baking powder, lemon peel and salt. Cut in shortening using a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in berries.
  2. Layer into a 1-quart canning jar, tapping gently on the counter between layers to settle before adding the next.
  3. Add additional dried blueberries to fill in small gaps if necessary.
  4. Store at room temperature for up to 6 weeks, or freeze for up to 6 months.
  5. Attach the following instructions on a gift tag.

Blueberry Scones

Place jar contents in a large mixing bowl. Add 1 beaten egg and 1/4 cup water; stir just until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and quickly knead gently for 12 to 15 strokes or until nearly smooth. Pat to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into desired shape and place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with milk. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a rack to cool slightly and serve warm.
