Tips For Making Lemon Blueberry Scones

  • Always use cold butter when making scones. We like to put it in the freezer before making lemon blueberry scones.
  • Use fresh blueberries for this recipe, you can use frozen but make sure you thaw them before you use them.

Lemon Blueberry Scones Recipe

We bake with all organic ingredients, however, you can substitute any of the ingredients in this lemon blueberry scones recipe with normal ingredients and it will come out fine. Use them in the same amounts as it calls for in this recipe.

What you will need:

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups organic all-purpose flour
  • ½ Cup raw sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ Teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 Tablespoon salted butter (frozen cut into paper-thin slices)
  • 1 Cup blueberries
  • 4 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¾ Cup heavy cream very cold
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract [try our recipe for homemade vanilla]

Topping:

  • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream (very cold)
  • 2 Tablespoon raw sugar (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Using a grater, shave the butter and add it into the flour mixture.

Add blueberries and stir to combine, just until blueberries are coated with flour mixture.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the cream, egg, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Place in the fridge until needed.

Pour cream mixture into the flour and stir with a fork until just combined.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a disc about 6 inches across.

Use a large knife to cut into 6 wedges. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. 

Brush the tops of the scones with heavy cream and sprinkle sugar over the top.

Bake for 16 to 19 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through, rotating baking sheet halfway through.

Serve warm or room temperature. Store leftovers in an airtight container.

Lemon Blueberry Scones Recipe Notes

  • This lemon blueberry scones get quite large so make sure you space them out on your baking sheet.
  • These are delicious served with fresh fruit, quiches, or lemonade.
