Wild Blueberry Cream Scones


Wild Blueberry Cream Scones
Panera Bread Recipe

Serves 6


3-3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder                                      
3/4 teaspoon salt                                                      
1/2 cup sugar                                                      
2-1/2 cups heavy cream                        
1 cup frozen wild blueberries                          
1/4 cup half and half (for brushing)                      
1 tablespoon granulated sugar


Pre-heat an oven to 350*F.
In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt;Add the heavy cream and frozen wild blueberries to the dry mixture and combine until a consistent batter is formed. This step is best done with a wooden spoon.

Place the fairly wet batter onto a lightly floured surface forming a round disc about 10” round by 2" high; Using a sharp knife, cut the disc into 10 or 12 triangles. Lightly brush the triangles with half and half, sprinkle with sugar and place on a cookie sheet;

Place the scones into the oven and bake for approximately 25- 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool 15 minutes before serving.

  1. Made these and are loving them! Do you happen to have calories per serving for those of us counting calories? Thanks for the recipe. I love your site.

  2. These are good blueberry scones on their own, but they are not comparable to the ones offered by Panera. I'll be tweaking this recipe around a bit more to get it just right. Maybe some buttermilk or cream cheese to give it some tang.

    1. hi have u tweaked the recipe for the blueberry scones yet and if you do could you post it? I followed this too but they were more like cake and did not have the same flavor at all.

  3. It's because your not cutting in butter to the flour to make it flaky and buttery

    1. Thank you both for this info. Could you please tell me how much butter I need to cut into the flour? Any other tweaks to make it more like Panera scones?
