Mouthwatering Lemon 🍋 & Blueberry Glazed Scones

I have always loved a good scone. Growing up my mom and I would go to Starbucks and our guilty pleasure was always a blueberry scone or the lemon pound cake to share. To me, there is nothing better than a scone and a hot cup of coffee or espresso. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

Baking does not come as easy to me as cooking and even I can’t mess these up. They’re so easy to make! Here is what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • zest of 1 large lemon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 large Eggland’s Best egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tablespoons (30-45ml) fresh lemon juice

You’ll start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees and prepare your baking dish with parchment or silpat and set aside. Add 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 1/2 tsp baking powder, & zest of 1 lemon in a bowl and mix. Now you’ll grate your stick of butter and add to bowl. Make sure your butter is cold. The colder the butter, the better. Now you’ll use either a fork or a pastry cutter to incorporate your butter. If you don’t have a pastry cutter and you bake a lot I highly suggest buying one. It just makes it so much quicker and it’s $5-$10 on Amazon. Now you will combine your 1 egg, 1/2 cup heavy cream, and 1tsp vanilla to another mixing bowl. Whisk together Now pour your wet into dry mixture. Use either your hands or a spatula to combine. Add blueberries, gently. Once combined you will lay a little flour down and form a disk with your dough, about 2 inches thick. Cut into 8 pieces. Assemble on your baking sheet. Place mid to lower rack in your oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Time to start in your glaze! The easiest part. Use the same lemon you zested and cut in half to juice about 3 tbsp. Mix with 1 cup powdered sugar til smooth. Once your scones are finished baking you will let them cook for about 10 minutes and add your glaze!Look at these beauties!!!!! SO GOOD. ENJOY! 😍
