  • Step 2

    Stir together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with 2 knives or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • Step 3

    Beat egg with a fork in a small bowl. Remove 2 tablespoons egg to another small bowl; set aside. Add buttermilk and vanilla extract to remaining egg; whisk with the fork until combined. Stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Gently stir in blueberries.

  • Step 4

    Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Gently knead until dough is no longer sticky, about 8 to 10 strokes. Pat dough into a 6-inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges, without separating, dipping the knife in flour between cuts.

  • Step 5

    Combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and orange zest in a small bowl. Brush top of dough with reserved egg and sprinkle with sugar mixture. Separate dough wedges and carefully arrange them, using a small wide spatula, in a single layer in the fryer basket, in batches if necessary.

  • Step 6

    Cook scones until golden brown, about 6 minutes. Serve warm.

  • Cook's Note:

    Sour milk can be used in place of buttermilk. Frozen blueberries can be substituted for fresh.
