Dry Ingredients for Lemon Blueberry Scones

In a bowl, combine your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Whisk until combined and smooth.

Cut in Butter

Cut the chilled butter into half-inch cubes and add to the flour mixture. I like to use a pastry cutter to help break down the butter. I use a knife to scrape the butter off the cutter. Keep breaking down the butter until they are the size of peas. If you don’t have a pastry blender you can use two forks to break down the butter also.

Toss the Blueberries in Flour

After the butter is pea-sized, add your fresh blueberries. You want firm, not over-ripe blueberries when making scones. Gently toss the blueberries in the flour mixture until they are coated.

Add Wet Ingredients

Pour the heavy cream into the mixture. Add the lemon juice to give it some great fresh flavor. Use a spoon to gently mix the cream and lemon juice in. The dough will look very dry and flakey texture, this is normal.

Kneading and Forming Scones

I prep a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then I sprinkle a little flour onto the parchment paper to have a floured surface to knead the scone dough. Gently knead the dough, and fold it over on itself until it starts to stick together. You can use a bench scraper to help with your kneading.

Creating a scone circle

Once it starts to stick together, I start to form the dough into a circle. My goal is to make a circle about 8 inches across. I will press down on the top and then round out the edges until I get the look I want.

scone wedges

Then I use a pizza cutter to divide my scone dough into 8 wedges. If you don’t have a pizza cutter, you could use a knife.

Finish the scone wedges with a brush of heavy cream. Then bake in your oven.

After the scones have baked and cooled I finish them with a drizzle of lemon glaze. Super easy to make with just powdered sugar and lemon juice.

Then finish with a sprinkle of lemon zest.

You can keep the scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or you can freeze them for up to 6 months.
