  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter and lemon juice until evenly mixed and slightly crumbly. Whisk together the eggs and half-and-half in a small bowl; add 3/4 teaspoons lemon zest with the egg mixture to flour mixture, and mix gently just until well blended and forming a dough. Fold in the huckleberries.
  3. Divide dough in half, and on a floured surface, shape each half into a ball, then flatten slightly. Cut each round into six wedges; place on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice to make a glaze. Drizzle glaze on cooled scones. Sprinkle with remaining lemon zest for garnish.

I am no scone connoisseur...but these were easy and DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe to a T...with only one exception. I had no huckleberries, so used thawed (purchased frozen) blueberries. I...

These are the best huckleberry scones I've ever had! Granted they're the first but as we're overloaded with wild huckleberries at our house we're always looking for new recipes. I didn't have ...

This is a great spring or summer-time treat. I used blueberries instead of huckleberries. The only comment I have to make is that these were very tart/lemony - make sure to measure exactly or us...

Not the best berry scones I've had, but they aren't bad. The dough is a bit wet, and the berries on the bottom got burnt, but there are no major issues. I made half a batch and used almonds and ...

I've been a baker of scones for almost 20 years and this recipe is absolutely a keeper. Those who worry about the "too wet" dough should add only the amount of liquid (eggs/cream/zest) that is ...

Great great recipe! I substituted heavy cream in place of half and half- made the dough a little harder to handle although, they came out great! I did learn one thing- you have to use fresh berr...

simple and very tasty!

These scones were very good. I followed the recipe all except for the huckleberries. I substituted it with dried mango. Very tasty!

Very good! I doubled the lemon juice and used dried blueberries. They turned out light and delish!
