This recipe is a perrenial favorite. Once you get the knack, it's very easy. I make a batch, split it in half (using a kitchen scale for accuracy) and keep the halves in zipper bags in the freezer for future use. Each half makes 6 scones, just enough for a Sunday-paper-reading session. A trick for adding fresh or frozen blueberries - during the second folding process, gently press the berries into the surface of the dough before you fold.I also sometimes subsitute dried cranberries and toasted walnuts for the blueberries. Yum!
