need scone recipe - not too sweet

I have been on a quest for a great scone recipe ever since Starbucks got rid of the old unhealthy ones when the law changed here in NY. I was never able to find out where they sourced them from. I am talking about the blueberry scones with the crunchy browned outside and not too sweet inside. The scones I find are either completely dry, like a biscuit or too cakey like a muffin or a bad cake. Ideally they should have a nice crust with an interior that isn't too sweet, but not bland like a biscuit. A while back, Cooks Illustrated did a recipe with blueberries that were folded into the dough. It was good, but the crust wasn't there. I tried to search for the old Starbucks recipe, but never found it. It appears that their products differ region to region. I am not a lover of Starbucks food, but this one scone haunts me. I want to make it for Fathers Day, if I can find it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
