  • In a small bowl beat egg with a fork. Remove 2 tablespoons egg to another small bowl; set aside. Add buttermilk and vanilla to remaining egg; whisk with the fork until combined. Add to flour mixture all at once. Stir with a fork just until moistened. Gently stir in blueberries.

  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Gently knead 8 to 10 strokes or until dough is no longer sticky. Pat dough into a 6-inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges (do not separate), dipping knife in flour between cuts.

  • In a small bowl combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and orange zest. Brush top of dough with reserved egg. Sprinkle with sugar mixture. Separate wedges. Using a small wide spatula, carefully arrange dough wedges in a single layer in fryer basket (line with parchment paper to prevent sticking), in batches if necessary. Cook for 6 minutes or until scones are golden brown. Serve warm.

Made these following the instructions to a "t", the dough came out so sticky I wasn't able to make into wedges after kneading on "lightly floured" surface. Ending up making like drop biscuits and added sugar/zest to tops, placed in air fryer basket and air fried at 360 deg f. For 6 minutes ended up adding additional time, all air fryers are different and not an issue. The batter had oozed out of the holes of the air fryer basket and ended up having to trim the oozed batter from the bottom of the basket then they came out fine. Taste was good, just an issue with shaping.
