I have always drooled at blueberry scones- basically anything made with blueberries.It was only a matter of time for me to try it out ..and try, I did and the scones came out fabulous.What made it more special was that it is vegan- thanks to this vegan bicyclinguist

Baking powder- 3 tea spoon
Salt-1/4 tea spoon
Vegan margarine-1/2 cup
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1.Preheat oven to 425 degree F
2.Mix the dry ingredients along with lemon zest.
3.In a seperate bowl, miss water and lemon juice.
4.Cut the margarine into small pieces and roughly mix it into the dry mixture until pea sized pieces are left. He gently warns not to overwork the dough.
5.Chill the water and lemon juice mixture and the dry ingredient mix in the freezer for about 15 minutes and remove.
6.Now is the time to mix the blueberries into the mixture.
7.Adding the lemon juice and water to the mixture,keep mixing until the dough holds together-again just enough for the dough to hold together.
