Things that are often taken into consideration when making such plans are the pocket book, weather, water accessibility, beauty, adventure…. After all, this trip will be one of the loveliest times of your life! With that said, this decision should be made with excitement, ease, and confidence for what is in store after that magical, life changing day when you say I Do.

Blueberry Sage Scones

Recipe adapted from What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today

Makes 10-12 scones

3 c.           Flour

6 t.           Baking powder

1 t.           Salt

1/2 t.       Cardamom

10 T.        Butter, chilled & cubed

1 1/2 T.   Sage, finely chopped

3/4 c.       Frozen blueberries

1 c.           Organic plain yogurt

1/2 c. + 2 T. Coconut or Almond milk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine first 4 ingredients. Stir to combine. Add butter and cut in until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add sage and blueberries, gently stirring just until combined.

In a separate small bowl, mix together yogurt and milk until incorporated. Slowly pour into large bowl with dry ingredients, gently folding over with a wooden spoon until combined. On a lightly floured countertop, turn over dough just until you’re able to form into a round circle (you may need to form 2 smaller circles, depending on the size of scone you want).

Cut shapes using a cookie cutter or the bottom of a round glass, making sure to lightly flour between each cut to prevent sticking. Sprinkle with sugar and place in oven, baking for approximately 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Scones are best served fresh, but may also be frozen prior to or after baking for convenience.
