Scones Ingredients

  • 2 C flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 T unsalted cold butter
  • 2 T Pioneer® Sugar
  • 1 C heavy cream
  • 1 C fresh blueberries

Lemon Glaze Ingredients:

  • zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ C lemon juice (best freshly squeezed, about 2 lemons)
  • 2 C Pioneer® Confectioners Powdered Sugar
  • 1 T unsalted butter

Scones Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Slice up the butter into small pieces and cut it into the flour mixture with a fork until well blended and pea sized.
  3. With a wooden spoon, stir in Pioneer® Sugar and heavy cream. Gently stir in blueberries just until mixed. Drop by about 1/4 – 1/2 cup portions onto prepared cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 15 – 17 minutes. While baking, make the glaze.

Glaze Directions:

  1. Wash and dry one lemon well, grate it to get about a tablespoon of zest.
  2. Need and then squeeze lemons until you get 1/2 cup of juice; remove the seeds.
  3. Mix in the Pioneer® Confectioners Powdered Sugar with a whisk.
  4. Microwave the butter for about 30 seconds to soften, and mix it in.
  5. Remove scones from the oven and let stand for just a few minutes. Drizzle generously with lemon glaze and serve warm.
