Red, White and Blue Scones just in time to get the ingredients and make them for breakfast tomorrow! ❤️🤍💙The lemon glaze puts these guys over the top. Don’t skip it! Also, I grate the butter on the big holes of the grater and put it on a sheet tray in a single layer before I pop it into the freezer. It’s WAY easier than grating a frozen stick of butter! Try not to overmix the dough once you add in the dry ingredients. Otherwise, you will end up with a dry scone. These have made it on to my new favorites list!

Ingredients

For the Scones

  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • lemon zest, from one lemon
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 8 tablespoons butter, grated then frozen
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup diced strawberries
  • ½ cup blueberries

For the glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

For the Scones

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix together the lemon zest and sugar. Whisk in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add butter, and mix with your fingers until the well combined and the mixture looks like coarse meal.
In a small bowl, combine egg, cream and vanilla. Mix well. Pour into flour mixture. Add in berries. Mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Scrape dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
Using hands, shape dough into a ball, making sure to fold in all the loose clumps. Shape into a 7-inch circle, approximately 3/4 inch thick, and cut into 8 equal pieces. With space between each triangle, place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

    When you add the liquid ingredients to the flour mixture, do you mix it with the wisk or a hand mixer?

      I fold it in with a spatula. A little tip: any baked good you make with flour in it has the potential to be over-mixed. Over-mixing develops the gluten and makes for a very tough end-product. So, you just want to mix until you see that last little bit of flour disappear then STOP MIXING! I hope this helps!
