Low Fat Blueberry Cream Cheese Scones

I have always been a little scared to make my own scones, but after trying what was definitely the most delicious blueberry cream cheese scone I have ever had, I had to come back to try. The difference in this scone than a traditional baking recipe that uses blueberries is that you leave the cream cheese in chunks rather than mix it throughout the batter. This produces delicious, creamy pockets of cream cheese in the scones. Yum. (I adapted this recipe from What Matters Most)

    Is there any way you could specify the ounces of cream cheese needed?

    I enjoyed these for the first time this morning. The texture was wonderful and I loved the pockets of cream cheese! I did use all white flour (personal preference) and increased the vanilla to 2 tsp. My only complaint was that they weren’t quite sweet enough for me. I think maybe this was because of the tartness of the cream cheese. Next time I might add some Splenda or make a glaze for the top. Thanks for the great recipes, Kristen!
