Two Peas and Their Pod: Lemon Glazed Berry Scones

Lemon Glazed Berry Scones

I love making special breakfast treats on weekends. During the week I eat breakfast at work. I usually have a bowl of cereal or oatmeal. Don't get me wrong, I love cereal and oatmeal, but sometimes I want something special. Good thing we have Saturdays and Sundays:)

I recently tried a new scone recipe. We love scones at our house. I usually make one of Dorie's recipes, but this time I tried a more rusti
c scone from Tyler Florence. His recipe called for blueberries and an orange glaze, but I changed it up a bit.

I used frozen mixed berries, we have a huge bag in our freezer from Costco:) I also used lemon zest in the dough mix and did a lemon glaze
. These scones were super easy to mix up! You just drop the dough onto the baking sheet too! You don't have to worry about cutting them into triangles, etc.

My berries juiced a little bit so the scones were, purple, blue! They were kind of pretty that way though! I loved all of the berries and the lemon glaze was a nice finishing touch! It made quite a few scones so I put some in the freezer. When we are in the mood for a treat I just heat them up in the oven!

Lemon Glazed Berry Scones

Adapted from Tyler Florence

2 cups unbleached flour, plus more for rolling berries
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar

Zest of one lemon
1/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut in chunks
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 pint berries (I used mixed frozen berries)
Turbinado Sugar, for sprinkling on scones

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and zest; 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 berries 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. I used my Silpat! Sprinkle scones with Turbinado sugar.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until brown. Cool before applying the lemon glaze.

Lemon Glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
2 lemons, juiced and zested

To prepare Glaze: combine sugar, zest, and juice and whisk until smooth. Drizzle or brush on top of scones.

The bursting fruit makes them look so special. I've never made scones at home for fear they will turn out like hockey pucks. :) I will have to give these a shot sometime though.

Ooohhh? I like berries and lemon together. And I love scones. Actually this coming Saturday will be my first day alone (1 day a week as back up) doing bookkeeping in our small office next to my boss. I will be there before him and need something to suck up a little with sitting on his desk when he gets there. Yes I am not against sucking up, just in a fun way. These just might do the trick. Thanks.
And no, don't waste the butter on those cookies. I actually ate half of one and threw them all away.
Everytime I see your wedding photo, it makes me miss being in love. I am so happy for you.

We always keep frozen berries on hand! When fresh ones are on sale, I buy a lot and freeze them, or just go to Costco for the big old bag!

Amber-thanks for the warning on the cookies! I am glad you like our wedding picture. It was a perfect day. You are so sweet!

Blonde Duck-You have never made scones? You gotta try them girl!

I love scones, and these look fabulous. I'm sure a lemon glaze would be much nicer than orange.
