Fresh scones are so much better than store bought ones! They're so fresh, moist and tender...well, there's just no comparison.

How to Make Glazed Lemon Blueberry Scones

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat oven to 400'F.
  • 2First, sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

    Using 2 forks or your fingers, cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. (I did this by hand). The mixture should end up looking like coarse crumbs.
  • 3Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream & lemon zest. Fold everything together until just mixed; do not over work the dough or the scones will be tough. Gently, fold the blueberries into the dough, taking care not to mash them.
  • 4Press the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form into a rectangle. (Don't use a rolling pin, it will smash the berries.) Cut the rectangle in half then cut the pieces into half again, giving you 4 squares. Cut the squares in half on a diagonal to give you a triangle shape. Makes 8.
  • 5Mix together a small amount of heavy cream and a dash of vanilla. Brush the tops of the scones and sprinkle with a little sugar.
  • 6Place scones on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 400'F until golden brown and the blueberries have burst, about 15-20 minutes. Let cool a bit before you apply the glaze.
  • 7Lemon Glaze:
    Mix the confectioner's sugar and lemon juice (1 Tbsp. at a time) until the desired consistency. Whisk the glaze until all lumps are out, and drizzle over cooled scones.
    You'll never buy scones again!
