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 What Matters Most)
