posted by Ivanka 06-15-98 1:44 PM


2 c. flour
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
4 T. cold butter, cut up
1 c. blueberries
2/3 c. heavy or whipping cream
1 lg. egg
finely grated lemon peel from 1 lemon
1/4 c. milk for brushing

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.

With pastry blender, cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add blueberries and toss gently to mix.

In a small bowl, mix cream, egg, and lemon peel until blended.

Slowly pour cream mixture into dry ingredients and stir until a soft dough forms.

With lightly floured hands, knead dough in bowl just until it comes together, about 3 to 4 times. Do not overmix!

On lightly floured surface, shape dough into a round disk (11 to 12 in.).

Cut the disk into 8 wedges.

Transfer wedges to ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops with milk.

Bake scones 22-25 minutes, until golden brown.

Makes 8 large scones.
