Lunch Box Blueberry Scones

I made these for my Grandkids lunch boxes.
Fast and easy to make.
Healthy and Nutritious.
And the kids love them.
Yields 32 small scones.

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees
 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

3 1/2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2/3 cups butter
1 cup blueberries
1 cup milk
1/2 cup maple syrup. (Pancake syrup will do also)
1/2 tsp maple flavouring extract or vanilla.

Preheat oven to 425 deg. F
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.
Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in the blueberries

In a separate bowl stir together the milk,
 maple syrup and maple extract.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry 
and mix until a soft dough is formed.
Dump the dough onto a floured surface
Divide the dough in half.
Roll out or pat out approx. 9 x 6"

Before cooking, I brushed with Milk
to make a crust. (Optional)

Bake for approx. 12-15 minutes (425 deg.)

Maple Glaze:

Combine 1 cup of powdered (icing sugar) 
sugar with 2 tbsp maple syrup and 1 tbsp milk.
 (Add more milk is not liquid enough)
