Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • zest from two lemons (about 2 tablespoons), divided
  • 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter , cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 3/4 cup half and half

For The Glaze
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • lemon zest

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and half of the lemon zest. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender (or your hands) until mixture resembles crumbs.
  3. Toss in blueberries and coat lightly with the flour mixture. Add half and half and fold together gently until the mixture just begins to come together and form a soft dough. (Do not knead or over mix the dough.)
  4. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and pat into a 1-inch thick rectangle or circle. (If dough is very sticky, sprinkle with just a hint of flour.)
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut into triangles. (If you shaped your dough into a rectangle, you'll get 12. If you shaped the dough into a circle, you'll get 8.) 
  6. Place scones on prepared baking sheet and bake 16-18 minutes or until cooked through and golden.
