Blueberry-Honey Scones with Yogurt Glaze

These scones are accented with blueberries, made tender with yogurt and topped with a honey-yogurt glaze. Scones are very easy to make, but be careful not to overwork the dough or they'll become tough. Simply stir the wet and dry ingredients together until moistened. The dough will look rough and craggy, but resist the urge to stir it until smooth. The dough will come together as you pat it out.

SCONES

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled, cut-up
3/4 cup fresh blueberries
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 egg

GLAZE

2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
1 to 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

1. Heat oven to 375ºF. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until butter is the size of blueberries. Stir in blueberries and lemon peel.

2. Whisk 1/3 cup honey, 1/4 cup yogurt and egg in small bowl until smooth. Using fork, stir into flour mixture until moistened. On lightly floured surface, pat dough to 1-inch thickness. Using 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds, pressing dough scraps together as needed. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

3. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack 5 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, whisk 2 tablespoons yogurt and 1 teaspoon honey in small bowl until blended. Slowly whisk in 1 cup of the powdered sugar, adding more powdered sugar to desired glaze consistency. Spoon over warm scones; let stand 5 minutes. Serve warm.
