Better late than never on this one. I made these what seems like forever ago before Hunt & Harvest was even a thing and just stumbled upon the forgotten photos today. They are (were) absolutely delicious.
I would do despicable things to have another one today. If it wasn't 200 degrees in my apartment, I'd whip up a batch right now. They're relatively easy and you probably already have a good chunk of the ingredients ready to go.
WHAT YOU NEED:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold, unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons maple syrup
3/4 cup cold buttermilk
1 cup blueberries*
*Fresh is great, frozen will also work
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Cut butter in using a pastry cutter, two forks, or your fingers. Work mixture until butter flakes range in size from oat flakes to peas.
- In a small bowl, combine egg, maple syrup and milk. Add to flour mixture, stirring to create a dough. Fold in blueberries.
- Turn onto floured board or wax paper and knead about a dozen times. Pat into a 1 inch thick rectangle. Cut out 2 inch squares and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown on top.
