These lemon blueberry scones are bursting with flavour while being light and moist! The juicy sweet blueberries pair perfectly with the bright tartness of the lemon! Enjoy with cup of tea or coffee!
The combination of lemon blueberry reminds me of spring and I am hoping that these scones inspire some spring weather! I am so over winter and all the snow. I am ready for some warmer days and pretty spring flowers.
I love that scones are so quick and easy to make! They only take a few minutes to mix together and they only take around 15 minutes in the oven. All in all, you can have a fresh batch of scones in a half hour! Which is particularly awesome, if like me, you decide you HAVE to make scones at 10:30PM on a Monday evening.
These lemon blueberry scones are full of flavour! The lemon brightens these scones and brings a delicious fresh flavour to them. While the blueberries add sweetness. The scones are deliciously buttery and have the perfect crumb. They make for a delicious breakfast or afternoon snack. I love them with a warm mug of tea (or coffee!).
Lemon Blueberry Scones
Makes 8 Scones
1 ½ c flour
¼ c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
Zest, from 1 lemon
½ c butter, grated
½ c heavy cream
1 c blueberries
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Using either a pastry cutter, a fork or your hands, cut cold butter into flour mixture. Course crumbs should form, almost like a wet sand.
In a small bowl, beat together egg and cream. Add liquid ingredients to flour and butter mixture. Mix until just combined. Add in the blueberries . Mix until incorporated.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until combined. Shape dough into a large circular shape, about 1 inch thick. Cut into 8 equal triangular pieces. Spaced evenly apart, place scones onto prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with extra cream.
Bake for 14-16 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Allow scones to cool on baking sheet before transferring to serving platter. Store in airtight container.
