1/3 c
granulated white sugar
2 tsp
baking powder
1/8 tsp
salt
1/3 c
butter, cut into pieces
1 c
fresh blueberries

1 tsp

1/2 c

STREUSEL TOPPING

1/4 c
brown sugar
1/4 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp
butter, softened

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives until crumbly. Mix in the blueberries and lemon zest. In a small bowl, combine the cream, egg and vanilla. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until all ingredients are moistened.
2
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough gently four or five times and then pat the dough into a circle that is about 7 inches round and about 1&1/2 inches thick. Cut into triangles and place the scones on the baking sheet, or use a scone pan. Brush the tops of the scones with a little cream or milk.
3
In a small bowl, with a pastry blender or fork, mix together the sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter until crumbly. Top each scone with a teaspoon or two of the streusel mixture.

Bake the scones until lightly browned on top, 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a scone comes out clean.
