Blueberry Lemon Scones

I’m not a person who likes biscuits and I don’t care for sweet things. But at our church camp, the cook fixed some blueberry scones. They were delicious! Not very sweet and not a biscuit.

So, I decided to try my hand at some scones and decided to make mine blueberry lemon. They were a hit at our house. So good that I’ve made them twice!

Blueberries are in season now, so it was easy to find some that were ripe and sweet. Frozen blueberries can be used also, but don’t thaw them or they will bleed into the dough, and you will have purple/blue scones. Give these a try and see if you like them as much as we do❤️

Blueberry Lemon Scones

2 cups all-purpose flour

2-1/2 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup sugar (or sweetener equivalent)

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into small squares and chilled till cold

1 cup fresh blueberries

1 Tbsp lemon zest

1/2 cup cream (or half & half, or whole milk)

1 large egg

1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring

Icing:

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1 Tbsp lemon zest

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking pan or cover with parchment paper. I used my baking stone.

2. Combine dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder & salt

3. Cut in the chilled butter cubes using a pastry blender or your hands (can also be done with the paddle blade of your mixer or a food processor) Mixture should have the texture of coarse meal.

4. Fold in the blueberries and lemon zest, being careful not to squish the berries.

5. Whisk together the cream, egg & vanilla flavoring

6. Pour over the dry ingredients and carefully mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until dough comes together.

7. Turn out dough onto a floured surface and gently knead a few times

8. Press dough approximately an 8 inch circle, and 3/4-1 inch thick.

9. Cut into 8 pie shaped wedges

10. Place onto prepared baking pan about 2 inches apart

11. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown

12. Remove from baking pan to a wire rack

13. When cool, mix icing ingredients and drizzle over scones.

14. Enjoy!!
