Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • Using 2 forks or a pastry blender, cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream. Fold everything together just to incorporate; do not overwork the dough.
  • Fold the blueberries into the batter. Take care not to mash or bruise the blueberries because their strong color will bleed into the dough.
  • Press the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 12 by 3 by 1 1/4 inches.
  • Cut the rectangle in 1/2 then cut the pieces in 1/2 again, giving you 4 (3-inch) squares.
  • Cut the squares in 1/2 on a diagonal to give you the classic triangle shape.
  • Place the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet and brush the tops with a little heavy cream.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until beautiful and brown. Let the scones cool a bit before you apply the glaze.
  • For the Orange Glaze: Mix the orange juice and confectioners' sugar together in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Add the orange zest and butter.
  • Nuke it for 30 seconds on high.
  • Whisk the glaze to smooth out any lumps, then drizzle the glaze over the top of the scones.
  • Let it set a minute before serving.
