You can’t go wrong with the flavor combination in these blueberry lemon scones. They’re amazing!
Hi! It’s Kathy from Beyond the Chicken Coop! I’ve been busy baking up some yummy scones. These blueberry lemon scones are just what you need for breakfast or for mid-morning tea!
Fresh blueberries and lemon are made for each other. Add them to a scone and you’ve got an amazing treat! And then to top it all off, I added a lemon glaze! Super Yummy!
Scones are not hard to make. The only tricky part can be mixing the dough. At first it will seem a bit too dry. Don’t add extra liquid. You just need to get your hands right in the dough and gently knead it together. Then plop the dough on a lightly floured surface and form the dough into an 8 inch round. If it’s crumbly, just mush it back together. Cut the round into eighths. Place each slice on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I like to separate my slices just slightly so the circle is a bit bigger than started. Easy as pie…or should I say…. Simple as Scones!
