Lemon Blueberry Scones

Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door

Makes 8 scones


Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut into pieces

1 cup fresh Wish Farms Blueberries

1 cup milk, plus more for brushing the scones

Zest of one lemon


For the glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar

1 Tablespoon milk 

Zest and juice of one lemon


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner and set aside. 


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it looks like coarse crumbs. Carefully fold in the blueberries. Make a well in the center of the bowl and pour in the milk. Gently fold everything together just to incorporate, being careful not to overwork the dough.


Press the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 12 inches long. Cut the rectangle in half, then cut the two pieces in half again, giving you four squares. Cut the four squares on a diagonal to give you eight triangle shapes. Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with a little milk. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar or granulated sugar, if desired. Bake the scones for 20 minutes, or until brown. Let the scones cool slightly before glazing.


For the glaze, whisk all of the ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the scones and allow to set for just a few minutes before serving.
