    2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly), plus more for hands and work surface
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    zest of 1 large lemon
    1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, frozen
    1/2 cup light sour cream
    1 large egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup (190g) blueberries (fresh or frozen)


    1 cup (120g) confectioners sugar, sifted
    2-3 Tablespoons (30-45ml) fresh lemon juice


Preheat oven to 400°F . Adjust baking rack to the middle-low position. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Grate the frozen butter (use a box grater; or a food processor also works ). Toss the grated butter into the flour mixture and combine it with a pastry cutter, a fork, or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk the cream, egg, and vanilla together. Drizzle it over the flour mixture and then toss the mixture together with a rubber spatula until everything appears moistened. Slowly and gently fold in the blueberries. Try your best to not overwork the dough at any point. Dough will be a little wet. Work the dough into a ball with floured hands as best you can and transfer to a floured surface. Press into a neat 8″ disc and cut into 8 equal wedges with a very sharp knife. Place scones at least 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked through. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. To make the glaze, simply whisk the confectioners' sugar and 2 Tablespoons lemon juice together until smooth. Add another Tablespoon of lemon juice to thin out, if necessary. Drizzle glaze over scones right before serving. Serving Size: 8 scones
