I used to think nothing of buying a blueberry scone to go with my morning coffee until I realized that my morning's indulgence contained more than 450 calories and an unhealthy dose of fat. I also realized that I didn't need to eat a whole wedge, which lay like a stone in my stomach. So here's a much lighter blueberry scone, which is smaller but just as tantalizing. These scones are drop scones rather than wedges, which makes them the perfect size for a morning or afternoon treat. These are best served warm.
