Servings: 12 Yield: 12 scones Prep 10 mins Bake 400°F 12 mins to 15 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar plus enough milk to equal 1 cup
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Make It

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking- sheet liner.

2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add butter; mix with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gently stir vinegar-milk mixture into dough, along with blueberries, orange peel and egg just until combined.

3. Using a standard ice-cream scoop (about 1/2 cup), drop heaping scoopfuls of dough onto prepared sheet, about 2 inches apart. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with sugar.

4. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature with flavored preserves, if desired.
