Full Answer

To make blueberry scones, place a rack in the middle of the oven, and preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, sift together 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 3 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon of baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Cut in 6 tablespoons of cold unsalted butter until the chunks of butter become the size of peas. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries and 1 teaspoon of grated lemon zest.

Whisk together 1/3 cup of heavy cream and 2 large eggs, make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the liquid mixture. Stir with a fork until the dough forms, and then put the dough on a floured surface before kneading it a few times. Pat the dough until it forms a 6-inch square and is 1 1/4 inches thick, and then use a floured knife to cut it into four 3-inch squares. Cut the four squares on the diagonal to make eight triangles, and transfer the scones to a baking sheet with a baking mat. Brush the tops of the scones with heavy cream, and after sprinkling with sugar, bake them for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
