Easy Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze
Recipe type: Dessert, Quick Bread, Bread
Serves: 8
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut in chunks
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 lemon, zest finely grated
  • 1 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing the scones
  • Lemon Glaze:
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 lemon, zest finely grated
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients; the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. Using 2 forks, cut in the butter to coat the flour. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs.
  4. Fold the blueberries and lemon zest into the batter. Take care not to mash or bruise the blueberries because their strong color will bleed into the dough. Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream. Fold everything together; do not overwork the dough.
  5. Press the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 12 by 3 by 1¼ inches.
  6. Cut the rectangle in ½ then cut the pieces in ½ again, giving you 4 (3-inch) squares.
  7. Cut the squares in ½ on a diagonal to give you the classic triangle shape.
  8. Place the scones on an un-greased cookie sheet and brush the tops with a little heavy cream.
  9. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until beautiful and brown. Let the scones cool a bit before you apply the glaze.
  10. You can make the lemon glaze in the microwave.
  11. Mix the lemon juice with the confectioners' until dissolved in a microwave-safe bowl. Whisk in the butter and lemon zest.
  12. Cook the glaze in the microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk the glaze to smooth out any lumps.
  13. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the scones. Let it set a minute before serving.
  14. Makes 8 Scones.
