Ingredients:  
Scones:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut in chunks
1 cup fresh blueberries, frozen or bagged frozen berries
1 cup heavy cream, plus a little more for brushing the scones
Lemon Glaze:
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice 2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Zest from 1 lime

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Sift together the dry ingredients; the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Combine dry ingredients with sliced butter in food processor. Pulse until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Fold the blueberries into the batter. Take care not to mash or bruise the blueberries because their strong color will bleed into dough. Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream. Fold everything together just to incorporate; do not overwork the dough.
Press the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 12 by 3 by 1 1/4 inches. Cut the rectangle in 1/2 then cut the pieces in 1/2 again, giving you
4 (3-inch) squares. Cut the squares in 1/2 on a diagonal to give you the classic triangle shape. Place the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet and brush the tops with a little heavy cream. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until beautiful and brown. Let the scones cool a bit before you apply the glaze.
Mix the lime juice with the confectioners' sugar. Whisk in the butter and lime zest. Whisk the glaze to smooth out any lumps (can toss in microwave for 30-60 sec if too thick), then drizzle the glaze over the top of the scones.
