Lemon Blueberry Scones

Lemon Blueberry Scones: These scones are light, flaky, and full of flavor! A perfect way to toast to the end of summer!

Lemon Blueberry Scones | A Latte Food In my life, I have found that people don’t really like scones. The usual complaint? They’re too dry.

Okay, I get that. Scones can be very dry.

Like where’s-the-water-or-coffee-because-I’m-choking dry.

Don’t worry, guys. I promise you this, these scones are good and not dry at all. Plus, they’re filled with sweet blueberries and tangy lemon zest and glaze.

Could it be any better? (In a Chandler Bing from Friends voice)

There’s just something about the blueberry flavor mixed with the bright lemon flavor that create this out of the world combination. Plus, it’s pretty much like summer in a scone.

And, I really like scones. They might be one of my favorite snacks. Next to cookies. And brownies. And cake.

Okay, so I really like anything sweet.

My sweet tooth runs deep.

Lemon Blueberry Scones | A Latte Food Since my New York trip, I’ve been attempting to re-create everything I ate and share it with you guys. Now, I ate a lot of great things in New York from a lot of great places.

I wasn’t planning on including the scone I ate from Starbucks (in the airport) in this post, but after making these for a friend’s baby shower (or baby sprinkle since it’s her second child 🙂 ), I decided why not photograph these delicious babies and post them for you? It’s simply ironic that I happened to eat one in NYC. I guess my love for scones runs deep.


I like my scones more than Starbucks’. 🙂

Lemon Blueberry Scones | A Latte Food  I’ve made these time and again, and the scone foundation is my go-to scone batter because it’s easy to work with and never dry.

You start with flour, sugar, salt, zest, baking powder, and cold butter and combine it until it resembles coarse crumbs, much like pie dough.

Next, you add an egg and heavy cream.

Lastly, you add in blueberries, and the dough is done.

Pat the dough into a circle, with the dough about 1/2 inch thick, and cut the dough into 8 triangles.

Bake at 400 for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.

Mix lemon juice and powdered sugar for the glaze, pour over the scones, and eat ’til your heart’s content.

    Dry scones? Yes I can see why that would turn you off them! It would be like eating a mouthful of sawdust. Though I do find that excessive amounts of cream and jam can disguise a bad scone. These, on the other hand, look absolutely divine and don’t need ANY cream or jam on the side!

    Just made these for the first time, and they turned out amazing! I’ve never made scones, I usually bake cookies and cakes. But I do love them so I had to give this a try, plus I just bought blueberries and lemons. This is my new fav recipe, thank you! 🙂

    Just made this recipe. While they had great flavor, they were pretty salty. I think I’d cut back from a tsp of salt to a pinch… I know baking powder can be a little salty too…
