Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

AuthorGeo FoodsCategory

Ingredients

 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1 tbsp baking powder
 ½ tsp salt
 2 tbsp sugar
 5 tbsp unsalted butter, cold, cut in chunks
 1 cup fresh blueberries
 1 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing the scones
 ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
 2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
 1 tbsp unsalted butter
 1 lemon, zest finely grated

Preparation

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using two forks or a pastry blender, cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. Fold the blueberries into the batter. Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream. Mix together. Press the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle. Place the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet and brush the tops with a little heavy cream. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until brown. Cool a bit before glazing.

You can make the lemon glaze in a double boiler. Mix the lemon juice with the confectioners' sugar until dissolved in a heatproof bowl in a microwave-safe bowl. Whisk in the butter and lemon zest. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the scones. Let it set a minute before serving.
