Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter and lemon juice until evenly mixed and slightly crumbly. Whisk together the eggs and half-and-half in a small bowl; add 3/4 teaspoons lemon zest with the egg mixture to flour mixture, and mix gently just until well blended and forming a dough. Fold in the huckleberries.
  3. Divide dough in half, and on a floured surface, shape each half into a ball, then flatten slightly. Cut each round into six wedges; place on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice to make a glaze. Drizzle glaze on cooled scones. Sprinkle with remaining lemon zest for garnish.

I am no scone connoisseur...but these were easy and DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe to a T...with only one exception. I had no huckleberries, so used thawed (purchased frozen) blueberries. I served these at Easter brunch and EVERYONE (boys and girls from 5 to 85) loved them and several asked for the recipe. Even my father-in-law, who usually thinks scones are too dry, loved these. I'm already planning to make them again next weekend :)

These are the best huckleberry scones I've ever had! Granted they're the first but as we're overloaded with wild huckleberries at our house we're always looking for new recipes. I didn't have any fresh lemon or zest so I left the zest out and used my old standby Minute Maid frozen lemon juice concentrate and they turned out fine. I can see how the zest would add another citrus dimension and look forward to doing them exactly as the recipe states soon. My husband took one bite, rolled his eyes in happiness and stated, "Killer scones. We won't be giving these away."

This is a great spring or summer-time treat. I used blueberries instead of huckleberries. The only comment I have to make is that these were very tart/lemony - make sure to measure exactly or use a little bit less than the recipe calls for.
