What is way funner to make than a scone or a muffin? ! A blueberry blob. A moment of silence please…I am waiting for the people of the internet to call and tell me ‘funner’ isn’t a word. Which, I suppose, they are correct. Living in the home state of Noah Webster himself, I should reference the dictionary for something accurate but alas, my roommate is a three year old. Let’s be fun and sometimes that means being even ‘funner’. (ps if anyone can tell me the correct spelling in their dictionary of this word, I’d appreciate it.)
So call them biscuits, shape them into scones, do whatever your heart desires with this recipe however Bailey and I will be over here eating blueberry blobs and oh so delicately dipping them in milk. After being sick this week, the investment of teaching my threenager (also not a word, so what Webster), how to cook really paid off. I got soup delivered in bed and tea in the morning. Not mad about that decision however one thing to note is that she has a heavy hand. When cooking, I keep the salt at a safe distance, which for my child means out of the house and down the street. When baking, I allow her to sprinkle sugar as she pleases. This recipe, while delicious and perfect, is on the sweet side.
If you really want to, you can put this recipe into a muffin pan and we will still be friends.
