Ingredients

  • SCONES

  • 2 c
    all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp
    baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp
    salt
  • 2 Tbsp
    sugar
  • 5 Tbsp
    unsalted butter, cold, cut into chunks
  • 1 c
    heavy cream, plus more for brushing scones
  • 1 c
    fresh blueberries (freeze to more easily fold into dough)
  • LEMON GLAZE

  • 1/8 c

  • 1/2 c
    powdered sugar
  • 1/2
    lemon, zest finely grated
  • 1/4 Tbsp

How to Make Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using 2 forks or a pastry blender, cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream. Fold everything together just to incorporate; do not overwork. Fold the blueberries into the batter. Take care not to mash or bruise the blueberries because their strong color will bleed into the dough.
  3. Press the dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 12 by 3 by 1 1/4 inches. Cut the rectangle in 1/2 then cut the pieces in 1/2 again, giving you 4 (3-inch) squares. Cut the squares in 1/2 on a diagonal to give you the classic triangle shape. Place the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet and brush the tops with a little heavy cream. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until beautiful and brown. Let the scones cool a bit before you apply the glaze.
  4. Mix the lemon juice and powdered sugar together in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the lemon zest and butter. Microwave for 30 seconds on high. Whisk the glaze to smooth out any lumps, then drizzle the glaze over the top of the scones. Let it set a minute before serving.
