It’s been a long 6 months during COVID and being alone. I haven’t been in a coffee shop in forever which means I haven’t indulged in rich and delicious pastries in a long time. I thought it was time I created my own scrumptious pastry. These 3-step blueberry scones are fast and easy and foolproof.
I’m not the best baker so you know if I say it’s easy – it must be super easy right? I’m telling you – these are seriously throw and go scones.
I know that we are still being safe, but I hope that that means we are grabbing coffee with friends. The act of being together face to face and encouraging each other fills our mental and emotional cup more than we even realize.
God wants us to be together. Sharing our lives with each other in person, strengthens the belief we have about ourselves and also fosters community, deepens relations, and provides a security our souls long for.
Sometimes this can often be called hospitality—this physical community with others complete with food and drinks. But let’s look at that word hospitality. We have known it to be this spiritual gift that takes weight and requires a great deal of effort. Honestly, it’s something that many of us feel we are too busy to do. The expectation we put on ourselves, the perception of others, and the expectation others put on us creates overwhelming stress. So why would we even think about being hospitable or hosting anything?
But friends. I want to encourage you. Hospitality can also be known as friendship. How we love each other. It is done in the home, embracing each other and creating an inclusive environment to grow, share, laugh, cry, and of course eat food!
Don’t make it more than it is. Put some coffee on, whip up these scones, invite one or two girls over, and chit chat about life.
Let’s Make these easy 3-Step Blueberry Scones
- Mix all of the ingredients for scones together in this order: dry ingredients, butter (with a pastry cutter), the wet ingredients, and then the blueberries (gently!). Do the same with the glaze.
- Roll out on a surface, flatten and cut into triangles. Option: brush cream on top for a glazed look)
- Cook at 400 for 15-18 minutes, remove and pour glaze over.
