  • Blueberry Crème Fraîche Scones on a plate and a cup of coffee.

    As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to share a recipe using leftover Crème Fraîche from the Kale Soup. I don’t really have any recipes on hand to use up Crème Fraîche, so on my way to drop off my children at schools I had asked my husband to search for a recipe (ahem, that’s called a multi-tasking, right?). He then responded with this Blueberry Crème Fraîche Scones recipe.

    Most blueberry scone recipes require some heavy cream or sour cream, but I’d never seen one that required Crème Fraîche before. I thought I should give it a try, so I did. They weren’t professionally done because this was my very first attempt making homemade scones from scratch. But my children and I liked them and we had a nice snack time (tea time for me).

    After my first trial, I bought a dough blender so I’m now better equipped and will experiment more to create the perfect scone recipe. These scones are delicious and the recipe is very easy to follow. If you have leftover Crème Fraîche like I did, try making some homemade scone for afternoon tea time or breakfast. Enjoy!
