The perfect scones do exist!  Learn simple and easy  techniques for deliciously  flavorful and flaky scones  every time.

Gather your blueberry  lemon scone ingredients: flour sugar baking powder salt butter buttermilk eggs lemon vanilla blueberries

Step 1: Whisk all-purpose flour,  granulated sugar,  baking powder and  kosher salt together  in a mixing bowl

Step 2: Cut unslated butter into  the flour mixture  with your fingers. Use very cold butter with  a high butterfat percentage.

Step 3: Whisk together buttermilk,  egg, and vanilla extract  separately.  Then gently combine the  wet and dry ingredients  to form a shaggy dough.

Press the dough into a  rectangle. Place blueberries  onto half of the dough  and fold it over.  Repeat this  process several times to  create flaky layers  in the scones.

Gently shape the scone  dough into an 8-inch round,  about 1-inch thick and then  cut it into six wedges

Brush the tops of the  scones with  an egg-wash  and then sprinkle with  granulated sugar to create a crunchy golden-brown  crust on the scones

Bake the scones in a  preheated oven and serve  them warm with butter  or cream.  Scones are best eaten  the day they are made.
