I haven't made scones in a very long time. I wanted to dive back into them, because there is such a wide variety of flavors you can use for scones. They can be savory or sweet, and really have anything in them!
I did add a little more to this blueberry lemon scone recipe! These scones also have a lemon glaze on them! I couldn't resist adding some more lemon.
The first thing we do for this blueberry lemon scone recipe is mix all of the dry ingredients together. That includes the gluten free flour, sugar, salt, and the baking powder.
You will then add the butter. The most important part of this is that the butter is cold. I cut my butter into small cubes, or you can grate it into the dry mixture.
You then want to cut in the butter in the dry ingredients.
Cutting in means to work the flour and butter with a your hands or with a pastry blender until it is well combined. The Spruce Eats gives a great explanation on cutting in, and why we do this!
Once the butter has been cut in, you will add the liquids to the mix. That would be the egg, heavy cream, lemon juice, and vanilla, and you will also add the lemon zest in.
Mix this together until it is well combined. Add the blueberries, then wrap the dough in plastic wrap. You want to put the dough into the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
After the dough has chilled, place it on top of a piece of parchment dusted with gluten free flour, then shape it into a circle. Dust the top of the dough with more gluten free flour, then roll it out until it is about 1" thick. Try to keep the circle shape while you roll it out.
Cut the dough into 8 triangle (like how you would cut a pie!).
Bake the scones, then let them cool.
The lemon glaze for this blueberry lemon scone recipe is incredibly easy. You just mix all the ingredients for it together until it is smooth!
Drizzle it on the gluten free blueberry scones, and enjoy eating your blueberry scones with lemon glaze!
