“This recipe came from the Martha Stewart's web site. It is probably best to use fresh blueberries in this recipe, or if you use frozen make sure they are well thawed out. The sugar topping makes a crunchy topping. I love the addition of lemon zest in the scones, because it brings out the blueberry taste. Instead of zest you can also use lemon oil (1/4 tsp), and you will get a mild background lemony taste. Probably best to make these on the day you will eat them. They are not as good the day after. Right out of the oven with a pipping hot cup of coffee is the way to go!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F with rack in center. Place a baking mat on a baking sheet, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in butter until the largest pieces are the size of peas. Stir in blueberries and zest.
  3. Using a fork, whisk together cream and egg in a liquid measuring cup. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients, and pour in cream mixture. Stir lightly with fork just until dough comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead a few times to mix well.
  4. Pat dough into a 6-inch square about 1 1/4 inches thick. Using a floured knife, cut into four 3-inch squares. Cut squares in half on the diagonal to form eight triangles. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.
  5. Brush tops with cream, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes. Transfer scones to wire racks to cool.
