|Orange sugar (see tip optional)|
|1/2 cup / 125 ml||frozen wild blueberries|
|3 tbsp / 45 ml||fresh orange juice|
|1 tbsp / 15 ml||finely grated orange zest|
|1/3 cup / 75 ml||Egg Creations Whole Eggs Original, well shaken|
|1 cup / 250 ml||10% cream|
|3/4 cup / 175 ml||ice cold butter|
|1/2 tsp / 2 ml||salt|
|3/4 tsp / 4 ml||baking soda|
|1 tbsp / 15 ml||baking powder|
|1/4 cup / 50 ml||granulated sugar|
|3 cup / 750 ml||all-purpose flour|
Stir flour with sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Use a box grater to grate in butter; stir until well distributed.
Whisk cream with eggs until well combined. Set aside 2 tbsp (30 mL) for glazing; mix remaining cream mixture with orange zest and juice until well combined.
Add orange-cream mixture to flour mixture; stir, just until a ragged dough forms. Turn out onto a well-floured surface. Gently knead in unthawed blueberries, just until uniformly distributed. Shape into a large disc.
Cut dough in half. Shape each half into a flat, round disc about 6-inches (15 cm) in diameter; cut each into 6 wedges and transfer to parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Glaze with reserved cream mixture. Sprinkle with orange sugar (if using).
Bake in preheated 400°F (200°C) oven for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden on bottom and puffed. Serve warm.
For orange sugar, blend 1/4 cup (50 mL) coarse sugar with 1 tsp (5 mL) finely grated orange zest.
Replace blueberries with frozen raspberries or dried cranberries.
Unbaked scones can be frozen on a baking sheet; then transferred to an airtight container or freezer bag. Bake from frozen, adding a few extra minutes as needed.
