Blueberry scones with lemon glaze

Makes 8

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour plus more for dusting and kneading
  • 1/4 cup sugar plus 1/2 tablespoon for topping scones
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup organic blueberries, rinsed and stems removed
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and in a medium mixing bowl and stir.
  3. Cut in the cold butter using 2 butter knives or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add heavy cream and milk and stir until combined. Add the blueberries and give the dough a quick stir or 2 to mix in the blueberries. Form the dough into a ball and transfer to a floured surface.
  5. Knead the dough gently until it is no longer sticky, adding more flour as needed.
  6. Pat the dough into a 9-inch round circle and transfer to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Cut the circle 4 times using a pizza cutter to get 8 wedges (it can also be cut down smaller to get 16 wedges if you'd like smaller scones).
  7. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown on the outside and the center of the scones is thoroughly cooked.
  8. After removing the blueberry scones from the oven, let them cool while you make the lemon glaze. To make the glaze, combine powdered sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  9. Top scones with the lemon glaze before serving and enjoy!
