Blueberry Scones

Ingredients 

2 cups of all purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
8 tablespoons of cold vegan butter
3/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1 cup of frozen blueberries

For the glazing

1 cup of icing sugar
2 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

Instructions for the scones

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with a silicone mat.

In a large bowl, mixtogether the flour, baking powder, ground flaxseeds and sugar.

Add the cold vegan butter, and use a pastry cutter or fork to blend the butter into the dry ingredients until it ressembles coarse crumbs.

Pour in the milk and vanilla, and stir until just combined. Fold in the blueberries. 

On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough a few times until it comes together. Flatten the dough with your hands into a 1 inch thick circle.

Using a pizza dough cutter or large well sharpened knife, cut it into 8 pièces, like you would a pizza.

Place the scones side by side onto the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top.

For the glazing

Combine the icing sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.

Let the scones cool for 30 minutes, then drizzle some of the glaze onto each scone. Let the glaze set before serving.
