My mom’s friend Nuala wrote this down from memory on a plain piece of lined school paper. Scones were a beloved treat from her youth in Ireland. In these days of e-mail and internet recipes, some of my favorites continue to be the hand written ones I have collected over the years, and the memories that resurface every time I reflect on the one who wrote them out ever so carefully. Even with a few modifications, Nuala’s scones are a real treat.

- 1/4 cup coconut sugar

- 1 tsp. lemon zest
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Mix dry ingredients together
- 6 oz. coconut milk mixed with 3/4 tsp vinegar
- 2 oz. buttery spread melted

Mix wet ingredients together. Pour wet ingredients into dry mixture, carefully folding until incorporated.
