Directions

1. To make the blueberry scones: Preheat your oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Work butter pieces into the dry ingredients until you get a coarse texture – do not overwork the butter. Stir in blueberries and lemon zest.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together cream, eggs, and vanilla extract. Add the cream and egg mixture; stir lightly with a fork or a spatula just until the scone dough comes together.

3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times. Pat into a 6-inch round, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Using a sharp knife dipped in flour, cut the dough into four parts. Cut each part in half diagonally to form a total of eight wedges. Transfer the wedges to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with more sugar.

4. Bake the blueberry scones until the tops are golden brown – about 20 to 22 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer the baked blueberry scones to a wire rack and let cool completely.

5. While the blueberry scones are cooling down, combine the ingredients for the glaze until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the scones. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the blueberry scones recipe

  • Avoid over-working the dough. The more you knead the dough for the scones, the more gluten will form, and you’ll end up with chewy scones. And same, avoid compressing the dough when shaping it into a thick disc.
  • Avoid over-baking the blueberry scones, or they will dry out.
  • Flour the knife blade to help make neat cuts into the dough.
  • Swap the blueberries for raspberries or blackberries, or make a mix.
  • Add some crunch to the blueberry scones with sliced almonds, walnuts, or chopped hazelnuts.
  • Use orange zest instead of lemon zest for a change of flavor.

What to serve with blueberry scones?

These blueberry scones are amazing for breakfast or as a snack. Pair them with a cup of tea, coffee, or smoothies! Alternatively, you can serve these blueberry scones as part of a larger brunch with a frittatashakshuka, and mimosas cocktails to drink!

How to keep the blueberry scones

Store any scones leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. You can even freeze the blueberry scones for up to 2 months! Double the scone recipe and freeze half to keep on hand ready for snacks or breakfast.
