This has become our favorite blueberry scone.   I usually freeze blueberries when they are in season and use them throughout the year.   I have also bought large bags of frozen blueberries.   The store bought blueberries tend to bleed a little.   That is not a problem, but I do prefer the scones not to be purple.   Nevertheless, they taste great.

Orange Glazed Blueberry Scone Recipe

Preheat oven to 400 deg.

In a large bowl, sift together:
2 cups unbleached flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar

Cut into the flour using 2 forks, a pastry blender or a food processor:
¼ cup butter, chilled and cut into chunks

Mix together and add to the flour mixture:
¾ cup buttermilk or cream
1 egg

In a little flour, add the berries and fold into batter being careful not to bruise berries:
2 cups fresh blueberries

You may drop a spoon full on an ungreased cookie sheet or add additional flour, pat down and cut into various triangle shapes.

Bake for 15-20 min.   Cool before applying orange glaze.
