Mave's Homemade Blueberry Scones
(submitted by: Marlene V.)
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups fresh blueberry (place in freezer)
8 Tbsp butter (2 blocks), grated and frozen
Mix dry ingredients with frozen butter. Do not overbeat. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix liquid mixture - fold in.
Heavily flour board and knead quickly 6 or 7 times. Roll dough out the 12 inch square (12x12).
Fold into thirds with pastry scooper. Fold in another thirds into square. Place dough in freezer for 5 minutes.
Roll dough in 12 inch square. Press cold blueberry into dough quickly. Roll into log. Flatten dough into 4 inch wide. Cut in 4 pieces. Cut into triangles.
Brush top with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 425 degrees.
*Note: Do not use a metal bowl. All ingredients must be COLD... cold butter, cold blueberries, cold dough. Do not over mix and over handle dough. It is better to use a pastry scooper - the heat from your hands will melt the butter and change the temperature of the ingredients.
