Carb Conscious
Our Carb Conscious recipes provide a balanced approach to carbohydrate consumption by replacing refined carbohydrates from sources like white flour, rice, and cane sugar with high-fiber foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

From the Test Kitchen

These warm, flaky scones get their rich, sweet flavor from a mix of seasonal nectarine, brown sugar, and cream in the batter—plus a swipe of maple syrup-infused butter.

instructions
Make the dough
1 Make the dough

Place half the butter in the freezer until hardened. Remove the remaining butter from the fridge to soften. Wash and dry the nectarine, then halve, pit, and small dice. In a bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of the cream, and 1 tablespoon of water. In a separate, large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Working quickly, using the large side of a box grater, grate the frozen butter into the bowl of dry ingredients. Toss to thoroughly combine. Add the wet ingredients and diced nectarine to the bowl of dry ingredients; stir to thoroughly combine (if the dough seems too dry, add 1 tablespoon of water).

Form & chill the dough
2 Form & chill the dough

Transfer the dough to a large piece of plastic wrap. Form into a disk, about 6 inches in diameter. Tightly wrap the disk in the plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, about 20 minutes.

Bake the scones
3 Bake the scones

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 350°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Cut the chilled dough into 4 equal-sized wedges. Transfer to the sheet pan, leaving about 2 inches between each scone. Evenly brush with enough of the remaining cream to cover (you may have extra). Bake 24 to 28 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottoms and cooked through. Remove from the oven; let stand at least 10 minutes.
