What's for Breakfast? How about an easy to make scone that can be in your oven in 10 minutes? Topped with warm a blueberry compote and whipped cream!
Add to the flour mixture and mix with a spoon until the mixture just starts to come together. Do not overmix.
Brush scones with heavy cream before baking, to improve the color of the finished scone.
While scones are in the oven begin your compote.
Place blueberries along with sugar, water and lime juice in a small pot or saute pan.
Bring berries to a boil, and continue to cook until skins of blueberries pop open.
Remove from heat and remove about two tablespoons of juice from the pan, allow it to cool briefly.
Mix in the cornstarch to the blueberry juice until all of the cornstarch has been blended.
Add the cornstarch mixture back into the blueberry compote and return to heat, on simmer for a few more minutes until compote has thickened.
Start on low speed and build up to faster speed gradually, (this will give you a better consistency for your whipped cream than over beating it from the beginning)
*If you have time place them in the freezer for 10 minutes to help them set up. This step is not critical, but I've found that it keeps them from spreading out as much
