Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, salt, and baking soda in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse 3 or 4 times to mix. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, 20 to 25 times. Pour mixture into a large bowl. Fold in blueberries, making sure they are well coated with the dry ingredients.

  • Beat 1/2 cup heavy cream, egg, and lemon juice together using a fork in a small bowl. Stir into flour mixture and mix just until slightly moistened.

  • Turn dough out onto a well floured surface. Gather dough in a circle using floured hands, kneading only slightly to incorporate any remaining dry ingredients. Flatten dough into a 9-inch round disc; cut disc into 8 triangles. Transfer scones using a bench scraper to the prepared baking sheets (4 scones per baking sheet). Brush scones with 2 tablespoons heavy cream.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until light brown, 20 to 23 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • Mix powdered sugar and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Transfer to a small resealable plastic bag; snip the corner off of the bag using scissors, and drizzle cooled scones with glaze.

Delicious. Easy to make up to the point of rolling them out. Even with floured hands the dough was very sticky and stuck to everything. After they were finished baking they looked great but they do fall apart very easily. They do however taste very good. I was expecting a more crunchy texture and these came out almost cakey inside. Had I realized this I might have chosen a different recipe. These are good just not the hard cookie-type scone I was expecting. Read More

I didn't know how to rate these since I haven't yet made them but they sound yummy. I do have a question tho - since I don't use a food processor can this be made successfully by just using a regular mixer? Read More

This is a great recipe. I love the crunchiness of the top with the brushed cream for baking. The inside is light and fluffy. Baking during Covid 19 pandemic meant modifying with ingredients on hand...sub with dry blueberries and plain greek yogurt instead of cream. This is a keeper!! Read More

They were light and rose much better than some others I tried but 20 minutes at 400 and the bottoms burned. I'd probably try 350-375 next time. Read More
