Earl Grey Blackberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

SCONE INGREDIENTS

  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (416 grams) — plus extra flour
    for kneading
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1.5 tablespoon earl grey tea, ground until fine
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup cold buttermilk
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • Extra buttermilk & granulated sugar to top scones before
    baking

GLAZE INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1.5 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Zest of 1 lemon

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Move baking tray to upper 1/3 of
the oven. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Grind 1 1/4 tbs earl grey tea in a small blender or with
a mortar and pestle.

3. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, tea,
baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Discard any pieces that don’t go through
sieve with ease. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the
mixture is course and butter is pea-sized or smaller. Place dry mixture in the
freezer or refrigerator for 5 minutes while you prepare the wet ingredients.

4. In a small mixing bowl, combine egg and buttermilk and
beat lightly with a fork. Rinse and dry the blackberries.

5. Take the dry mixture out of the freezer or refrigerator.
Mix wet and dry mixtures with a spoon until combined. Continue to combine with
your hands until a soft dough is formed. Knead by folding the dough in half 3-5
times.

7. Add blackberries and continue to fold until blackberries
are combined. The blackberries may get crushed a bit, that’s okay. Add more
flour as needed. Don’t overwork.

8. Shape dough to a 1 inch thickness. Cut dough into 2 inch
circles using a round pastry cutter or cut into 2 inch squares with a knife. Reshape
excess dough, fold and re-cut.

9. Place scones onto your prepared baking tray. Place tray
in the freezer for 5 minutes so that the butter can firm up again.

10. Brush scones with buttermilk and sprinkle with
granulated sugar before placing in the oven. Bake for 16-20 minutes until tops
are golden brown. Place scones on a metal rack with a piece of parchment paper
underneath until scones are cool.

12. Prep the glaze. Mix powdered sugar, lemon juice, vanilla
and lemon zest with a fork until smooth. Add extra lemon juice or powdered
sugar as needed until you get the right consistency.

13. Drizzle glaze evenly onto the scones, allowing excess to
drip onto the parchment paper. Let scones sit for 10-15 minutes until glaze
sets.

14. Serve as soon as possible. Scones will keep about 2
days. You can freeze extra scones (wrap in saran wrap) and reheat later as
needed.
