Hello, hello!!! Are y'all ready for some yummy goodness??? This recipe is perfect for a cozy breakfast on a cold morning :)
Blueberry Scones With Lemon Glaze
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut in chunks
1 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing the scones
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 lemon zest, finely grated
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using 2 forks,
cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. The mixture should
look like coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy
cream. Fold everything together just to incorporate; do not overwork the
dough. Fold the blueberries into the batter. Take care not to mash the
blueberries because their strong color will bleed into the dough.
Press the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about
12 by 3 by 1 1/4 inches. Cut the rectangle in 1/2 then cut the pieces in
1/2 again, giving you 4 (3-inch) squares. Cut the squares in 1/2 on a
Diagonal to give you the classic triangle shape. Place the scones on an
ungreased cookie sheet and brush the tops with a little heavy cream.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until beautiful and brown. Let the scones cool
a bit before you apply the glaze.
Mix the lemon juice and confectioners' sugar together in a microwave
safe bowl. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the lemon zest and butter.
Microwave it for 30 seconds on high. Whisk the glaze to smooth out any
lumps, then drizzle the glaze over the top of the scones. Let it set a minute
My Hubby just LOVES blueberry!!! Pancakes, muffins, pie, waffles...I mean EVERYTHING blueberry!
I LOVE lemon!!! I think this is a great compromise :) I just don't tell him there's lemon in it, lol...
Now onto the project.

Seriously, though. I can't wait to get bakin' with my babies :)
