Here's a recipe for a scone mix you can keep in the fridge, so you can make small batches of scones whenever the mood strikes. Flavor your scones to suit your fancy - like these beautiful blueberry scones that Dana whipped up, which are a lovely not-too-sweet treat studded with fresh seasonal blueberries.
