    winkki's Note:

    This was originally posted by Mean Chef; I had a nearly identical recipe posted, minus only the orange glaze. I got my version off a homeschool mom email loop; you know these have to be easy to do if we can make them while drilling multiplication tables and talking about Ancient Egypt. ;o)

    3. 3
      Cut in butter using 2 forks or a pastry blender.
    4. 4
      The butter pieces should be coated with flour and resemble crumbs.

    6. 6
      Mix just to incorporate, do not overwork the dough.

      Maybe it's because I just changed over from using cups to a plunger, but I think there's a touch too much baking powder in this recipe. I'd honestly half it next time. Everything is wonderful except there's that baking powder taste. =

      I used the whole half pint of cream in the scones and divided the dough into four piles to press in the berries. Shaped each into a square of about 5" X 5". They grew while baking. Then, for the glaze, I used 4 T of butter, 1/3 cup orange juice, zest of one orange and about 2 cups of powdered sugar. I nuked the butter and orange juice until the butter was melted. Then, whisked in the sugar (without sifting). I nuked it an additional 2 minutes. Then, added the zest. There were no lumps and it had thickened. I drizzled the glaze over the scones and they were delish.

      A fantastic and surprisingly easy recipe. I've made this recipe three times and all times the dough has been very thick. I simply divide the dough into 10 to 12 pieces, flatten them out, and press blueberries into the dough and then roll it back up into a ball. They turn out perfect every time.
