Ingredients

  • 2 large lemons
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 to 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F., and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • Zest your lemon and place the zest in a large mixing bowl
  • Add the granulated sugar to the bowl and mix well to combine. The zest should incorporate into the sugar and the sugar should smell nice and lemony.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and salt to the sugar mixture in the bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add the blueberries and mix gently to combine.
  • Add 1 cup of cream, and mix gently until the mixture comes together. You can add a few more tablespoons of cream as needed. The dough should be soft and well combined, but not sticky or overly crumbly. Don't overwork the dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead the dough a few times, and form it into a ball.
  • Dust the parchment or baking mat with a little flour.
  • Place the dough on the parchment or baking mat. Gently press the dough into a flat circle that is about 1.5 inches thick.
  • Cut the circle into 8 even pieces.
  • Gently separate the pieces so that they have an inch or so in between them (I use a spatula or the knife I cut them with to help me move the dough).
  • Bake for 17 to 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden-brown.
  • Mix the powdered sugar with a little lemon juice from your fresh lemons to make a thin glaze. When the scones come out of the oven, drizzle them evenly with the glaze. Serve warm or at room temperature.
