Holiday Blueberry Scones- Bread Week!

Welcome to Thursday Holiday Flare,
This weeks category is Breads.

Oh those holiday breads,so many to choose from. This year I wanted to do a Breakfast Scone.
I love scones with a cup of coffee or tea. Scones are really easy to make. Do not have much prep time and the cooking time is about 30 minutes. Time to make and have in the oven before the folks are up. I guarantee that the smell will get everyone up and going.
