2 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
sugar
5 Tbsp
cold unsalted butter
1 c
fresh blueberries
finely grated zest of 1 lemon

In a large bowl, gently whisk all the dry ingredients together.
2
Grate the butter on the coarse side of a box grater and add to the dry ingredients; gently toss to combine.
