  • Test Kitchen Tips Scones originated in Scotland. Cutting butter into dry ingredients results in tiny bits of flour-coated butter throughout the dough, creating a cookie crust that is both tender and crumbly at the same time. If you don’t have a pastry blender, use two knives to cut in the cold butter. Here's how to measure flour the right way.
  • Editor's NoteIf using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
