Lemon & Blueberry Scone Slices



330g self raising flour

75g butter, cold diced

40g caster sugar

Zest of 1 lemon

120g blueberries, frozen

180ml milk


Juice of 1 lemon

2 heaped tablespoons of icing sugar

Makes:  6 large scone slices

The blueberries in this recipe are best frozen, which stops them completely disintegrating and bleeding too much on baking,  buy them fresh and then simply pop them in the freezer before you get going, you don’t need to buy them ready frozen.
