Total Time30 mins
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar + more for topping
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter + more for topping
- zest and juice of one lemon
- 3/4 - 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup fresh blueberries tossed in 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 1 - 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400º F. Line a rimmed baking sheet pan with parchment paper or a nonstick baking sheet.
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add butter to the bowl and cut into the flour with a pastry blender until the largest pieces of butter are about the size of a pea and the flour mixture resembles coarse meal. Add zest and juice of the lemon. Stir in 3/4 cup of heavy cream. Press dough together between the palms of your hands. If it doesn't just hold together, add more heavy cream until it just holds together. Fold blueberries into the dough.
Pour dough onto a lightly floured countertop or a pastry board. Pat dough into a large round disc, about an inch thick. Cut dough into equal sized wedges and place onto prepared baking sheet pan.
Bake scones for 20-25 minutes or until they are just beginning to turn lightly brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm. You can also drizzle a warm glaze on top of the scones, if you'd like. Just whisk all of the glaze ingredients together in a medium sized bowl and then drizzle on top of each scone.
