Blueberry-Pecan Scones

Becky Luigart-Stayner

Make these scones a day or two ahead, and store in an airtight container. Resist the temptation to knead the dough; doing so would break apart the tender blueberries. Leftover scones are nice with tea later in the day.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (about 9 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Gently fold in blueberries and pecans. Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist (dough will be sticky).
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; pat dough into an 8-inch circle. Cut dough into 10 wedges, and place the dough wedges on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush egg white over dough wedges; sprinkle evenly with 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake scones at 375° for 18 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
