  • 3 tbls (heaping) sugar
  • 1 tbls baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt

How to make Lemon Blueberry Scones

I love tea so I like baking yummy tea fare. These blueberry scones are a favorite among my family and friends. I usually think scones are too dry, but these are nice and moist. I recommend using fresh picked blueberries from a nearby farmers market, if you can get them. I love the big fat sweet ones. The better the quality of the blueberries, the more delicious these scones will be!

  1. Mix dry ingredients until uniform.
  2. Cut up butter into small pieces, mix into dry ingredients.
  3. Add zest and blueberries
  4. Beat eggs with the cream (lightly)
  5. Add egg and cream mixture and incorporate gently--try not to break any blueberries (although there are always some casualties in this process)
  6. Mix until there are no more dry crumbs left
  7. Form a large square with the dough, break into 8 triangular scone-shaped pieces by hand
  8. Place on parchment paper on a large baking sheet
  9. (Optional:) Brush with more cream and sprinkle with sugar
  10. Bake for 20mins at 400F (until slightly browned)

    Yay! I love recommending teas! This would go great with a rich and flavorful black tea with milk. I must admit, it's a pretty hefty snack. I recommend Twining English Breakfast (loose leaf, if you can get it) or Tazo Awake (which comes in bags) or any kind of Assam. Brew them nice and strong (3-5 minutes) and add a nice glug of real milk (or cream). Then put on a good CD and enjoy!

    I made your lovely scones just yesterday: in the beginning they were a bit alienish (so purple!) but turned out perfect! We had a wonderful lazy sunday afternoon with tea, scones and lots of friends!
