Lemon Blueberry Scones

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • Lemon Blueberry Scones:
  • 1 cup milk I used 2%
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup butter unsalted, cold, cut into cubes
  • 2 cups blueberries fresh
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • Lemon glaze:
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed


Preheat oven and prepare baking sheets: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix wet ingredients: In a medium size bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon zest and sugar. Set aside.
Mix dry ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour with the baking powder and salt together.
Cut the butter with the flour: Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the size of large peas, using a pastry blender. Stir in the wet ingredients, and mix until just combined.
Fold in blueberries: Sprinkle about 1 tbsp of flour over the blueberries and gently fold them in to the dough. The flour will prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom.
Shape scones: Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Cut the dough in 2 pieces. Gently roll out each piece of dough into a disc, taking care not to burst the blueberries. Fold the dough over itself and repeat 4-5 times. Depending on the shape you want your scones, roll out your dough into an 1-inch thick disc or rectangle. Cut the dough into wedges (if shaped into a disc), or squares (if shaped into a rectangle), or cut out with a biscuit cutter. Repeat with the other piece of dough. Transfer scones to a baking sheet and brush with egg white.
Bake: Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown and do not fall apart when nudged. Immediately transfer from the baking sheets to cooling racks.
Make lemon glaze: Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and lemon juice. Stir until the mixture is smooth and runny. If too thick add more milk; if too thin add more powdered sugar.
Drizzle scones with glaze and serve: While scones are still warm, drizzle lemon glaze over each scone. Allow scones to stand for a few minutes until the glaze forms a crust, then serve and enjoy.
