Confession: I love pretty much any sort of pastry, especially when served with a good cup of coffee or a latte.  If you are looking for something special (but not too fussy) to serve to your family/guests, give these a try! 

2 c flour
¼ c sugar
2 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
½ c diced/grated butter (cold)
½ c milk
1 egg
1 tsp lemon zest
¾ c blueberries
Topping: 1 TBSP butter and 1 TBSP sugar

Preheat oven to 425°F.  In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg; mix well.  Cut in the butter until the mixture s coarse and crumbly.  In a separate bowl, combine the milk, egg, and zest; mix well, then fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture.  Mix with a fork until a soft dough forms; gently add in the blueberries.  Pat dough into a ball and gently knead 8-10 times on a lightly-floured surface.   Place dough on a buttered stone/bakingsheet and gently pat into a 9” disc (~1/2 inch thick).  Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate.  Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
