1/2 -1 tsp. salt

Lemon Blueberry Scones

2 cups flour
6 Tbsps. sugar
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon zest
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, frozen
1/2 cup heavy cream (plus 2 Tbsps. for brushing)
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 heaping cup fresh or frozen blueberries (do not thaw)
Coarse sugar for topping

Lemon icing
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsps. fresh lemon juice

Whisk flour, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Grate the frozen butter; add to flour mixture and combine with a pastry cutter or 2 forks until the mixture comes together in pea-sized crumbs. Place in the refrigerator or freezer as you mix the wet ingredients together. Whisk ½ cup cream, egg, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Drizzle over the flour mixture, add the blueberries, and then mix together until everything appears moistened. Pour onto counter and, with floured hands, work dough into a ball as best you can. Dough will be sticky. If it’s too sticky, add a little more flour. If it seems to dry, add 1-2 more tablespoons heavy cream. Press into an 8-inch disc and cut into 8 wedges. Brush scones with the remaining cream and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Place scones on a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes before topping with lemon icing. (To make the icing, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice, mix well and drizzle over warm scones).
