Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Blueberry Scones

2 cup Wheat Flour, White, All-purpose, Enriched, Bleached
12.5 grams Sugars, Granulated
15 grams Leavening Agents, Baking Powder, Double-acting, Sodium Aluminum Sulfate
1 stick Butter
0.5 cup, fluid (yields 2 cups whipped) Cream, Fluid, Heavy Whipping
1 large Egg, Whole
1 cup Blueberries

Recipe Directions for Lemon Blueberry Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until mixture resembles a coarse sand (alternatively, if using a stand mixer, mix in butter with paddle attachment until butter is pea-sized or smaller).

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the heavy whipping cream and egg until well blended. Pour cream into scone mixture and mix until it comes together as a dough. Stir in the blueberries (over-mixing the blueberries will burst the berries and dye the batter purple?try to avoid this).

  4. On a lightly floured surface, place dough and form into a circle, flattening the top until dough is roughly an inch thick. Cut dough into 8 pie-shaped pieces and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until scones are lightly browned. Allow to cool to room temperature before glazing.
