Blueberry-Lemon Scones

Yeah..I think I just died and went to heaven, these are THAT good!  So light and fluffy, bursting with globs of blueberry.  Just when your tastebuds are in shock..the lemon flavor kicks in and BAM, you’ve officially entered heaven. 

Ingredients:
2 cups flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 Tablespoons butter-frozen (not margarine)
1 cup cream (whole milk will work, too)
1/2 cups dried or frozen fruit (Craisins, blueberries, raspberries…)

The how-to:
*preheat oven to 450*
*combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt
*whisk togeher
*grate (with cheese grater) frozen butter into dry ingredients
*using a fork, cut into and coat butter
*Add fruit and toss to coat
*Add cream and getly stir with rubber spatula
*add a light layer of flour to a cake round or square pan and pat mixture into pan
*turn out onto baking stone or cookie sheet
*cut into equal slices, like a pizza, and spread apart
*bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden and set in the middle
*let rest for 10 minutes

GLAZE:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
zest of half a lemon
1 Tablesoon melted butter
2 Tablespoons cream

**pour glaze over scones while they are still hot. Let set. Enjoy!

See what I mean? Heaven.  I like to use the zest of the whole lemon, instead of just half. None of this ‘girlie’ tasting lemon…I want monster lemon flavor.  The glaze is what really sets these apart from the rest.  Go make yourself a batch..eat it, try different fruits..then make one for your family. (our little secret. ;D)
