Description

A delicious scone bursting with fresh blueberries. Would also be fantastic with raspberries.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SCONES:
  • 2 cups Flour
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • 2-½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ⅛ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ cups Butter, Cut Into Chunks And Chilled
  • ½ cups Milk
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • ¾ cups Blueberries
  • FOR THE TOP:
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, Melted
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar

Preparation

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the chilled butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

In a small bowl, combine the milk, egg and lemon zest and mix. Add to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined and the mixture forms a soft dough. Gently mix in the blueberries.

Shape into a ball and lightly knead on a lightly floured surface 8-10 times. I did it really lightly because I tried not to crush too many of the berries. Shape into a 9-inch circle that is about 1/2 inch thick onto a buttered baking sheet (I used my Pampered Chef round stone). Cut into 8 wedges with a sharp knife; don’t separate.

Brush the top with the melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 400ºF for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy!

These were quick and easy to make and tasted wonderful! My guests had never had scones and raved about them.
