1/2 cup granulated white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
½ c chilled, unsalted butter, cut into pieces

2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk or cream

Preheat the oven to 375.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Lightly grease an 11” circle in the center of the paper.  In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. In a liquid measuring cup combine the cream, beaten eggs and vanilla. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until the dough comes together. Do not over mix the dough or the scones will be tough. Press half of the dough onto the circle.  Top with the blueberries.  Spoon the remaining dough over the blueberries.  Spread slightly.
