Christmas Treats Week 8: Blueberry Lemon Scones


Okay. If you are following along I missed week 7. I will go back and fill it in later but wanted to keep going with my project. Life sometimes gets in the way of things and I didn’t want it to completely derail my efforts.

Verdict:

These are so fresh tasting. At a time when we are eating tons of sweets and heavy foods it is nice to have something simple and fresh. The lemon adds a brightness to the scone which pairs nicely with the blueberries.

A bright, light, simple scone.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup cold heavy cream
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • Sprinkle  of granulated sugar for the tops of the scones

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the flour, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, and salt in the bowl and combine.
  3. Cut the butter into pieces. Incorporate it into the flour with a fork until combined into small crumbs.
  4. Slowly drizzle the half and half into the bowl and stir until just combined.
  5. Divide dough in half. Form each half into a circle, about 1 1/2-inches thick. Score each circle into 6 triangles with a knife, and move the pieces away from each other leaving about 1/2″ in between. Sprinkle tops with granulated sugar.
  6. Bake the scones for 14 to 18 minutes, or until set in the centers and slightly golden on the bottoms.
  7. Remove from pan to cool.
