  2. Sift flour, sugar cinnamon and salt into a bowl. Add butter. Using fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, Add blueberries
  3. Make a well in centre of mixture. Add buttermilk and vanilla. Using a flat-bladed knife, stir until a sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until just smooth
