1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. Place the stick of butter and heavy cream in the freezer for 20 minutes.
3. In the meantime, mix together, flour, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer.
4. Remove the butter from the freezer and cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
5. With the stand mixer on low, add the cubed butter to the bowl slowly to avoid sticking.
6. Mix on low until the butter pieces become pea sized, and the remainder of the flour is a sandy texture.
7. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
8. Combine the wet ingredients in the well and mix them with the dry material using circular strokes around the edge of the bowl until a shaggy dough forms. Add more heavy cream if too dry. Be careful not to over-mix.
9. Add the blueberries to the mixture and stir until distributed.
10. Flour a clean work surface and turn out the dough onto it.
11. With floured hands, form a disk with the dough, making sure that it is compacted enough that it won't fall apart when cut.
12. Using a knife or a bench scraper, cut the disk into 8-10 triangles.
13. After cutting, use a spatula to carefully move to a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat or parchment paper and move to the fridge to chill for a minimum of 30 minutes to a maximum of overnight.
14. Remove from the fridge after chilling and brush with heavy cream to get a crispy outer layer.
15. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Keep an eye on the scones while baking, and if they spread too much, use a spatula to coax them back to the desired shape.
16. Let cool for 30 minutes and make the glaze in the meantime by combining the confectioners sugar with the lemon juice. If the mixture is too thick or too watery, add more lemon juice or sugar respectively.
17. After cooling slightly, but while scones are still warm, drizzle glaze over the tops.
18. Allow to cool completely and then move to an airtight container for storage. Scones will last for a couple days at room temperature and up to a week in the fridge.
