Benecol® Blueberry Scones

Yields: 8 servings

Prep Time: 8 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Benecol® Original Spread
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3/4 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen

 Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425*F. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and sugar. 
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, Benecol®, milk and water. 
  4. Gently add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold in blueberries. 
  5. On a floured work surface, turn out the dough and pat down to a round disk approximately 1" thick by 10" wide, and slice into 8 wedges. 
  6. Place onto a floured baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. 

OPTIONAL: Make an egg wash by combining 1 egg with 2 tablespoons of milk and whisking, and brush the top of the scone dough just before baking. This will give the scones a beautiful golden color when they come out of the oven!
