Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 zest of a lemon
  • 1/2 cup COLD butter grated
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. butter melted

Icing

  • 1/2 cup lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • 2 1/4 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 2 teaspoon honey

Instructions

  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Add lemon zest. Set aside.
  • The key to perfect scones is all in the butter. Grate your COLD butter with a cheese grater and add it to your flour mixture.
  • Mash with pastry cutter or fork until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Fold in blueberries.
  • Beat egg, milk, and lemon juice with a fork in a small bowl. Stir into flour/blueberry mixture.
  • Gently turn out dough on a floured surface and roll into a 12″ round disc with a rolling pin. You don’t need to knead or work the dough. The less you handle the dough, the better. Flour your hands or rolling pin if you need to since it is a sticky dough.
  • Slice into 8 triangles.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes on parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Brush with melted butter.
  • Cool 15 minutes before drizzling with lemon icing.
  • For the icing: Combine ingredients and drizzle over scones.
