Blueberry Smooches

Susi Matthews

By

This cross between a scone and shortbread was invented after a friend who was having a bad day said she needed "blueberry smooches" to make her feel better. I decided that had to be a pastry so I found this recipe and altered it to add chocolate since any bad mood can be improved by chocolate, as well as the love of a friend. So this recipe is named in honor of her as well.
