Easy Blueberry Cream Scones

Easy Blueberry Cream Scones
Think of these scones as the easier, cooler cousin of the blueberry muffin. Why cooler? Because they don't even require a muffin pan. Why easier? Because all you have do is mix heavy cream and a little honey into the dry ingredients. It's a one-bowl brunch slam dunk.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 lemon
  • ⅓ cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. old-fashioned oats
  • 2½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1⅓ cups plus 1 Tbsp. chilled heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, preferably wild
  • 1 large egg yolk
  1. Place a rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 400°. Finely grate zest of 1 lemon with a microplane into a large bowl. Add ⅓ cup sugar and massage with your fingertips until mixture looks like wet sand and is very fragrant. Set aside remaining lemon for another use.
  2. Add 2 cups flour, 1 cup oats, 2½ tsp. baking powder, and ½ tsp. salt to bowl with sugared zest. Whisk to combine.
  3. Whisk 1⅓ cups cream and 2 Tbsp. honey in a medium bowl until combined.
  4. Slowly drizzle cream mixture into flour mixture, tossing with a fork to disperse liquid and hydrate flour. Stop mixing when you still have a few dry spots.
  5. Add 1 cup blueberries and fold mixture with a rubber spatula, taking care only to mix until blueberries are distributed throughout and you have a sticky dough. It’s okay if some of the blueberries bleed or get broken up.
  6. Dust countertop liberally with more flour and turn out dough. Pat down into a 1"-thick square, flouring hands lightly to prevent sticking as you work.
  7. Mix 1 egg yolk and remaining 1 Tbsp. cream with a pastry brush in a small bowl. Brush yolk mixture all across surface of dough.
  8. Sprinkle remaining 2 Tbsp. oats and 2 Tbsp. sugar over.
  9. Using a knife or metal bench scraper, cut dough into 4 quadrants, then cut each quadrant in half diagonally so you have 8 triangles.
  10. Transfer each triangle to a large parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet, spacing evenly.
  11. Bake scones on upper rack until tops are lightly golden all over and bottoms are golden brown, 15–20 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet. Serve warm.
Do Ahead:
  1. Scones are best made the same day. Rewarm slightly in microwave or oven, if needed.

Here’s How To Make The Best Macarons At Home

Here's How To Make The Best Macarons At Home
Next step: Open your very own macaron shop.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1¾ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup finely ground almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3 egg whites, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 drops pink gel food coloring
Vanilla Buttercream
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tablespoons heavy cream
  1. Make the macarons: In the bowl of a food processor, combine the powdered sugar, almond flour, and ½ teaspoon of salt, and process on low speed, until extra fine. Sift the almond flour mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl.
  2. In a separate large bowl, beat the egg whites and the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt with an electric hand mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add the granulated sugar until fully incorporated. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form (you should be able to turn the bowl upside down without anything falling out). Add the vanilla and beat until incorporated. Add the food coloring and beat until just combined.
  3. Add about ⅓ of the sifted almond flour mixture at a time to the beaten egg whites and use a spatula to gently fold until combined. After the last addition of almond flour, continue to fold slowly until the batter falls into ribbons and you can make a figure 8 while holding the spatula up.
  4. Transfer the macaron batter into a piping bag fitted with a round tip.
  5. Place 4 dots of the batter in each corner of a rimmed baking sheet, and place a piece of parchment paper over it, using the batter to help adhere the parchment to the baking sheet.
  6. Pipe the macarons onto the parchment paper in 1½-inch circles, spacing at least 1-inch apart.
  7. Tap the baking sheet on a flat surface 5 times to release any air bubbles.
  8. Let the macarons sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour, until dry to the touch.
  9. Preheat the oven to 300˚F (150˚C).
  10. Bake the macarons for 17 minutes, until the feet are well-risen and the macarons don’t stick to the parchment paper.
  11. Transfer the macarons to a wire rack to cool completely before filling.
  12. Make the buttercream: In a large bowl, add the butter and beat with a mixer for 1 minute until light and fluffy. Sift in the powdered sugar and beat until fully incorporated. Add the vanilla and beat to combine. Add the cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, and beat to combine, until desired consistency is reached.
  13. Transfer the buttercream to a piping bag fitted with a round tip.
  14. Add a dollop of buttercream to one macaron shell. Top it with another macaron shell to create a sandwich. Repeat with remaining macaron shells and buttercream.
  15. Place in an airtight container for 24 hours to “bloom”.
  16. Enjoy!

BA’s Best Coconut Cream Pie

BA's Best Coconut Cream Pie
Think of this like a Samoa cookie in pie form. It's perfect with whipped cream on top, but if you want to use up the extra egg whites, make a marshmallow topping. Bonus: you can torch it, for even more drama. This is part of BA's Best, a collection of our essential recipes.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Pie
Coconut Graham Crust
  • 1¼ cups unsweetened finely shredded coconut
  • 4 ounces graham crackers (about 7), lightly crushed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted, cooled
  • 1 large egg yolk
Coconut Caramel
  • ⅓ cup sugar, divided
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
Coconut Custard and Assembly
  • 3 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, room temperature
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 1 13.5-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk, shaken
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • Toasted coconut flakes (for serving)
Special Equipment
  • A 9-inch deep pie dish; a candy thermometer
Coconut Graham Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Arrange coconut in a thin, even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, stirring halfway through, until golden brown, 5–8 minutes; let cool. Set aside ½ cup toasted coconut for the coconut caramel.
  2. Pulse graham crackers, sugar, salt, and remaining ¾ cup toasted coconut in a food processor until crackers are coarsely ground. With the motor running, stream in butter, followed by yolk. Do not overprocess; you should have fine crumbs that are the texture of wet sand.
  3. Transfer mixture to pie dish and press firmly and evenly up sides and across the bottom. Place pan on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until crust is set and edges are brown, 12–18 minutes. Let cool.
Do Ahead:
  1. Crust can be baked 1 day ahead. Let cool, wrap in plastic, and store at room temperature, or freeze up to 2 weeks.
Coconut Caramel
  1. Sprinkle a thin, even layer of sugar into a small heavy saucepan. Cook, undisturbed, over medium heat until mostly melted, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle another layer of sugar over and cook, stirring to incorporate granular sugar into melted sugar with a heatproof spatula, until melted, another minute or so. Repeat until you’ve used all sugar. Continue to cook, swirling saucepan (do not stir), until caramel is dark amber, about 30 seconds longer. Remove from heat and carefully pour in cream, stirring to combine (caramel will sputter and seize up, but don’t worry).
  2. Return saucepan to low heat and cook, stirring, until any hardened bits of caramel are dissolved. Stir in oil until mixture is smooth, then fold in salt and reserved ½ cup toasted coconut. Let caramel cool in pan, then scrape into cooled crust and use an offset spatula to spread in an even layer. Cover with plastic and chill.
Do Ahead:
  1. Caramel can be made 4 days ahead. Transfer to an airtight container and chill. Rewarm over low heat before pouring into pie crust.
  2. Coconut Custard and Assembly
  3. Place oil in a medium bowl and set a fine-mesh sieve over top; set aside. Scrape vanilla seeds into a heavy medium saucepan. Add vanilla pod and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until coconut milk is reduced to about 1 cup, 10–15 minutes. Add half-and-half and bring to a gentle simmer.
  4. Meanwhile, briskly whisk egg, yolks, cornstarch, salt, and ½ cup sugar in another medium bowl until pale and thick, about 1 minute. Whisking constantly, slowly pour about ½ cup hot milk mixture into egg mixture. Go back to whisking milk mixture in saucepan, then slowly pour tempered egg mixture into saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until foam has subsided and custard holds the marks of the whisk, about 2 minutes.
  5. Immediately scrape custard into sieve and use a spatula to press mixture into bowl with oil; pluck out vanilla pod. Whisk strained custard until oil is incorporated and mixture is glossy and smooth.
  6. Set bowl inside another large bowl of ice water. Whisk occasionally until custard is cool, about 3 minutes. Scrape custard into chilled pie crust and smooth top. Press a piece of plastic directly onto surface of custard to prevent a skin from forming, and chill until set, at least 3 hours.
  7. Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Whisk in remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar.
  8. Remove plastic from surface of pie and dollop cream over set custard. Top with coconut flakes.
Do Ahead:
  1. Pie can be filled with custard 1 day ahead. Wrap in plastic and chill. Top with whipped cream and toasted coconut just before serving.

Take the original piece you crossed over (the lower left vertical piece) and cross that over to the right layering it over the last piece you used. Continue this counterclockwise until back at the bottom or you are unable to layer the dough anymore.
  21. Tuck in the excess pieces of dough under the bread.
  22. Transfer the bread into a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and brush with egg wash.
