Because I'm thinking that anything with butter, blueberries, sugar & dough you can go ahead and sign me up, I am totally there ;.) After scouring the Internet for delicious recipes the other day, I stumbled across this one from Martha Stewart for Blueberry Buttermilk Scones. Feel free to download this recipe, you know you want to ;.) I thought that honoring my mom with a yummy treat would show her just how much I love her;.) So I spent the day with my sleeves rolled up, the sun pouring through the kitchen window, all the while drooling over these blueberry babies.
I totally think this occasion called for a little wardrobe tweak, I think it's important to be a baking beauty in the kitchen;.) Armed with my dainty apron and my ear bling, I was ready to whip up some edible love for my lil mama! I was shocked at how simple this recipe was overall and I truly wanted to kick myself for not trying to make scones before now. Darn you Mr. Intimidation, get outta here ;.) Here are a few photos I snapped during the process...I warn you this may make you want to jump up and find some sort of pastry to eat!
Now if I told you that I didn't taste any of these warm puppies fresh out of the oven would you even believe me? Well you totally shouldn't... cuz I did, and I have no regrets. I mean what is the point of baking if you can't taste it? Too crazy for my brain to wrap around that thought I tell ya'!
Now since this isn't a baking blog and you don't really come here for that, and you're totally humoring me by even reading down this far, I figured I would show ya how you could give a homemade baked gift like this to someone, or in my case mi crazy madre. I was thinking you could either host a brunch in her honor and place them on special plate or cake stand or you could wrap them up and tuck them inside of a little box of yuminess to bring to her. Love on the go as you will....
Both options as equally as sweet and both so simple to do. To package them I chose to use brown parchment paper and fun twine...I also printed out the recipe onto a brown paper bag I used as paper. How is that for recycling? Also a tip is to visit dafont.com to download some awesome fonts to use in order to jazz the recipe up and make it funky, I did! I thought they looked so cute individually wrapped and it makes them easier to eat without making a mess. I was really proud of how amazing they tasted and that I would be able to give something that took my time and thought. The other bonus besides my ego ;.) was that it made the entire house smell amazing. It sort of put us in a scone trance over here at casa de Schutz ;.) Enough blabbering from me, I hope that maybe this inspires you to go homemade this year, or is anything else to go eat a scone! Let me know if you like the recipe ;.)
