  1. Step 1

     Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Step 2

    In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt using a whisk or spoon. 
  3. Step 3

    Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture. You can also do this with a food processor or two forks. Be careful not to use your hands, as it will cause the butter to melt and will change the texture of the scones. Cut the butter until it is a little smaller than pea-sized crumbs. 
  4. Step 4

    Whisk together the egg, sour cream, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and milk in a measuring cup until completely combined. 
  5. Step 5

    Add the wet mixture to the butter and flour mixture. Carefully incorporate until you have a wet and shaggy dough.  
  6. Step 6

    Gently fold in the frozen berries. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured sheet of parchment paper. Form it into about an 8-inch circle. Cut it like a pizza, forming 8 rounded triangles. 
  7. Step 7

    Place each scone onto a parchment lined baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each scone as they will rise and puff! Sprinkle the top of each scone generously with the coarse turbinado sugar. 
  8. Step 8

    Place them into the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes depending on your oven.  A toothpick should come out fairly clean, with only soft crumbs attached. 
  9. Step 9

    While the scones are cooling, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk to form the glaze.  Once the scones have cooled, drizzle the glaze over each scone.  Serve with coffee or tea!
