DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400.  Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Using a pastry blender or two butter knives, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Stir in berries & lemon zest.  In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients together, then pour wet mix in with the dry and use a rubber spatula to combine.  Do not overmix!  
  2. Divide the dough in half (it will be sticky) and place each half on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.  Cut into large circles with a cookie cutter or large cup.  Top with a sprinkle of sanding sugar, if desired.
  3. Bake 14 - 18 minutes, or until edges are golden brown, and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.  Whisk glaze together in a small bowl until smooth and drizzle over the scones.  Scones are best served warm.
