It’s been the year of goat cheese here on What’s Gaby Cooking. I’ve been working with Montchevre Goat Cheese and we’ve been putting it on pizzas, pastas, salads, dips, quiches… the works. Today it’s the star of these Blueberry Vanilla Goat Cheese Scones because if there is one thing I learn from my private chef days… everyone loves a scone! 

By now you’re all well aware of my Montchevre Goat Cheese obsession. It’s the perfectly creamy, tangy, delicious goat cheese that you can add into any number of recipes. But have you ever thought to add it to a scone? It’s a game changer. The goat cheese just gives every bite a little extra pizzazz, a bit of tang, and a nice creamy finish that perfectly complements the blueberries and butter. It’s perfection! 

PLEASE promise me you’ll make it this weekend. If you don’t get through all of them, they are easily stored in the freezer for weeks on end. Just take them out an hour or two before you need them and let them thaw. Or pop them in a toaster oven for a few minutes to warm them through. If you want to slather some extra goat cheese or butter on each bite, I would never judge you!!!

Servings 12 people

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar (this is optional and if you don't want them sweet, you can easily omit)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, cold, grated into small pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces Montchevre Blueberry Vanilla Goat Cheese
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or seeds
  • 1 egg, whisked into an egg wash

Instructions
 

  • Combine the dry ingredients; flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. Next add the goat cheese, cream cheese and blueberries. Next add the heavy cream and vanilla. Fold everything together being careful not to overwork the dough and/or crush the blueberries.
  • Form 12 medium sized mounds out of the dough. The size can vary depending on if you want to stretch the recipe to make more. Arrange them on a parchment lined baking sheet and chill for an hour
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Once chilled, whisk the egg together with 2 tablespoons of water. Brush the egg wash over the scones and bake for 16-20 minutes until tops are golden brown. Remove from oven and serve

    1. If you are looking for a gluten free substitution, I substituted the flour with all purpose gluten free flour (cuptocup) and it worked really well!

    1. Thanks!

      Also, I cannot find vanilla bean paste or seeds. Am I able to use vanilla extract?

  1. What amt of vanilla on the blueberry goat cheese vanilla scones???? They look delicious and want to make them.

    These are so good! I couldn’t decide on the sugar so opted for 1 TBS and they are just slightly sweet (the way I like) and perfectly golden, just lightly crisp on the outside and buttery soft inside.

    Incredible!!! The goat cheese is everything. I used the blueberry goat cheese from Trader Joe’s and vanilla extract instead of paste but otherwise followed the recipe and WOW.

  5. I made these and will definitely be making them again, they we’re devoured within 2 days, there’s only 4 of us here. I added the zest of a lemon (lemon & blueberry yummy). These were so easy I will be making them again this afternoon.

  6. 5 stars
    Wow…l these are to die for and cannot believe that they are not that bad on calories given the incredible taste. Mine looked a bit flatter than the pic so wondering what I did wrong?

  7. I am absolutely dying to make these. I have never bought vanilla bean paste or blueberry goat cheese. Does anyone have any recommendations to where I can buy these products? Thank you!

  8. I could only find blueberry lemon & Thyme goat cheese. Do you think I should omit the vanilla or will that work with the Thyme??

  9. 5 stars
    These are one of the most delicious baked goods that have ever come out of my oven. I made them smaller so there were more and I sprinkled turbinado sugar on top before baking. Thanks for rockin’ my life with these!!
