High-powered Manhattan attorney, Ellen Branford (Alison Sweeney), is going to fulfill her grandmother’s (Shirley Jones) dying wish—to find the hometown boy she once loved and give him her last letter. When Ellen leaves her Kennedy-esque fiancé, Hayden Croft (Kavan Smith), to go to Beacon, Maine, she expects to have a quick twenty-four-hour stay. But a near-drowning experience leads her to become a local celebrity and introduces her to a man named Roy (Marc Blucas), a carpenter who saves her life. As Ellen learns more about the past her grandmother has kept hidden and works to bring closure to her quest, she may find that a twenty-four-hour visit to Beacon will never be enough.

Recipe For Blueberry Scones With Thyme
- 2 cups flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 8 Tbs. cold butter, cut in small pieces
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 tsp. dried thyme or 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves (optional, but a great flavor combination with blueberries)
- 1 tsp. lemon zest
- ¼ tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
- ½ – 2/3 cup milk
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
How To Make Blueberry Scones With Thyme
Preheat oven to 400F. Grease baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray or use parchment paper.
In bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using pastry cutter, or two knives, cut in butter until mixture is size of very coarse crumbs. Stir in blueberries, thyme leaves, lemon zest and cracked black pepper. Stir in ½ cup milk until mixture just holds together, add remaining milk if mixture is too dry.
On lightly floured surface knead dough and shape into an 8-inch circle, about 1-inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Or you can use a biscuit cutter and cut into circles as close together as possible so as not to waste the dough in between. Brush tops with beaten egg and bake 20 minutes or until tops are golden.
Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Transfer to wire rack and cool slightly. Serve blueberry thyme scones warm or at room temperature.
