Lemon Blueberry Scones
Lemon Blueberry Scones,
2 cups of flour
1/4 cup sugar
2tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp of salt
6 tbsps, butter chilled
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 cup frozen blueberries (but I used fresh and had no problem)
Preheat oven to 400f line a baking sheet with parchment paper ( just greased it)
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder salt. Cut butter into 6-8 chunks and add to flour mixture, tossing to coat. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until mixture is sand and butter is well distributed. with no pieces larger than a big pea.
Add in milk, lemon juice and zest and stir until dough comes together. if dough is too wet. add an additional tablespoon of flour to the dough.
Either keeping the dough in your mixing bowl, or turning it out onto a lightly floured surface, knead dough for about one minute flatten dough and add blueberries.
Bake for 17-22 minutes, until scones are golden brown.
I used sugar, before I put them into the oven I sprinkled them with sugar then baked.
Lemon glaze: (optional)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
Whisk glaze ingredients together until smooth, then drizzle over still warm scones before servings.
I completed the green and now I'm not sure if I want more orange or multi color....
And look at this little dress that I found at Lovejoy's Tea house...I thought it was so sweet...
