- 20 mins
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder (yes, TABLEspoon)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
- 1/2 cup cold salted butter, cut into very small cubes
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup cold heavy cream
- 1 cup blueberries, fresh
- a few tablespoons of additional heavy cream for brushing the tops
- turbinado sugar for sprinkling the tops
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Stir the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and orange zest in the bowl of a stand mixer (or just a mixing bowl). Add the butter. Mix ingredients with an electric mixer until fine crumbs form.
With the mixer on low speed, add the egg and heavy cream in a slow stream. Mix until a thick, stiff dough forms. Add the blueberries and mix until the blueberries are just incorporated into the dough. If some of them break, that’s okay – you’ll get those pretty juice drips down the side.
Flour your hands. Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and place on a floured work surface. Roll into a rectangle, about 1 inch thick. Cut into 8 triangles; pull the triangles apart from each other and brush with heavy cream. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch. Sprinkle again with turbinado sugar for extra texture. Enjoy warm; store leftovers in an airtight container for 1-2 days.
