Blueberry Lemon Buttermilk Scones

Ingredients:

(for the scones)

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter, for brushing
  • 1 tbsp. coarse sugar, for sprinkling

(for lemon glaze)

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 tbsp. heavy cream

Directions:

  1. Make scones: Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Add butter and use your hands (or a pastry cutter) to cut butter into the flour until crumbles are the size of peas.  Add blueberries and lemon zest and toss to coat.
  2. Make a well in the mixture, then add buttermilk, egg, and extracts. Mix with your hands until just combined.  Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into an 8-inch circle.  Cut into 8 triangles and place on a prepared baking sheet.  Brush scones with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse sugar.  Freeze for 10 minutes.
  3. Bake until lightly golden, about 25 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, make the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, lemon zest and juice, and cream until smooth. Drizzle over cooled scones as desired.
