A Royal Wedding Breakfast

My mother and I woke up at 4am last Friday to watch the Royal Wedding of William and Kate.  My mother had watched the wedding of Princess Di so I was very happy to share this occasion with her.  We decided out menu would be light: scones and mimosas.  We made both blueberry and cheddar scones but I will just provide the recipe for the blueberry scones.  They are surprisingly easy to make and tasted great!

Blueberry Scones:

2 cups all-purpose flour  
1/4 cup granulated sugar 
2 1/2 teaspoons baking power 
3/4 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces 
1/2 cup chopped dates 

1 egg, beaten2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 325.  Combine the dry ingredients first in a large bowl.  Add the butter and then the milk and mix until you form a dough.  Do not over mix, scones are mean to be flaky and imperfect.  In order not to turn the scones blue, carefully fold blueberries into the dough- just a small handful at a time.  Form medium size rounds to make the scones and line on a pan. We used a small glass to make our rounds.  You may want to sneak a couple more blueberries on top of each scone. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.  Enjoy with mimosas and a royal wedding!
