Ingredients
Scones
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (or frozen in the winter months)
Glaze
  • 2-3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt, zest, and baking powder together. Cut in cold butter with a pastry cutter and mix the dough until the butter is about the size of peas and the dough resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Mix heavy cream and egg together, and slowly drizzle into the scone batter while stirring gently. Stir just until combined.
  4. Lastly, add in the blueberries and fold in gently.
  5. On a floured surface, turn out the dough and pat into a 1-inch thick circle. Cut the dough into eighths, place on a greased baking sheet, brush with heavy cream, and bake for 16-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. While the scones are cooling, mix together lemon juice, powdered sugar, and zest. Once combined, drizzle the glaze over the scones.
  7. Enjoy!
