DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; mix thoroughly.
  • Cut in butter using 2 forks or a pastry blender.
  • The butter pieces should be coated with flour and resemble crumbs.
  • In another bowl, mix buttermilk and egg together, and then add to the flour mixture.
  • Mix just to incorporate, do not overwork the dough.
  • Roll blueberries in flour to coat, this will help prevent the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the scone when baked.
  • Fold the blueberries into batter, being careful not to bruise.
  • Drop large tablespoons of batter on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until brown.
  • Cool before applying orange glaze.
  • To prepare Orange Glaze: combine butter, sugar, orange zest, and juice over a double boiler.
  • Cook until butter and sugar are melted and mixture has thickened.
  • Remove from heat and beat until smooth and slightly cool.
  • Drizzle or brush on top of scones and let glaze get hazy and hardened.
