Ingredients

For Orange Glaze

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

  1. Sift the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Try not to over mix into a sand like mixture.
  2. Fold in the blueberries gently trying not to crush the berries.
  3. Add the heavy cream and gently mix just until the batter is well blended. Do not over-mix.
  4. Spread some flour on your work surface and scoop out the dough from the bowl. Gently press out the dough until it is approximately 3/4 inches thick. The dough will be very sticky.
  5. Cut into triangles or you can use a 2″ round cookie cutter.
  6. Place the scones onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and brush the tops with cream. Sprinkle the tops with sugar and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Cool on wire rack before glazing.

Glaze

  1. Mix the orange juice, sugar and orange zest in small bowl stirring until well blended.
  2. Drizzle over cooled scones and garnish (optional) with orange zest.
