Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Sheet Pan

Ingredients
  

  • 8 tablespoon Non Dairy Butter, cubed See Note!
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Cup Plant Milk
  • 2 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • Zest of ¼ of a Lemon
  • 1 Cup Blueberries
  • Turbinado Sugar for Sprinkling optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425*F, line a sheet tray with parchment.
  • Combine non dairy milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla in a small bowl or measuring cup. Place in the fridge.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Into the dry ingredients add cubed butter. Break the butter apart with your fingers, then using either two forks OR a pastry cutter work the butter into the flour until its just smaller than small peas.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the bowl and using a spatula or your hands, gently fold the mixture together. It should look shaggy but be able to be pressed together.
  • Lightly flour a work surface, then dump the scone mixture out. fold the dough onto itself a few times if its still shaggy, just to form a more cohesive dough.
  • Pat the dough out into a 6x9 rectangle.
  • Add the blueberries on top of the dough rectangle and gently press them into the dough, then roll the dough toward you like a cinnamon roll.
  • Then press the rolled scone dough out into a 9x5 rectangle. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough in half longways, then make 3 cuts width wise, yielding 8 scones.
  • Transfer the scones to a parchment lined baking sheet, spacing them evenly. Sprinkle the tops of the scones with some turbinado sugar and bake for 18-21 minutes or until the bottom of each scone is nicely brown all the way across.
  • Serve warm or place in an airtight container and freeze for up to 1 month and thaw in the toaster oven!

Notes

Make sure to buy the non-dairy butter that comes in a stick form.  Don't use the kind from a tub for this as it will be too soft.
