Blueberry Scones

When I began learning to cook I basically knew little about cooking. As some mothers run the kids out of the kitchen and not in. Years later I remember making cookies for my little ones that looked like scones. I told a friend my cookies looked like biscuits. That's when she asked if I used baking powder ? She corrected my mistake as we had a good laugh. Happily the children loved them!
