My blueberry scones recipe is quick, easy, moist and uses lemon to add another dimension of flavor. This is a perfect breakfast, brunch, or dessert item to share or to freeze for fresh scones in the morning.

Notes

  • These freeze very well so wrap them in plastic and place them in a freezer bag if you want freshly baked scones
  • You can use frozen blueberries or fresh.
  • Don't overwork the dough as you'll make it tough, you want it to appear layered like a biscuit when you cut into these
  • While I made this is a food processor, you can use a pastry cutter as well to achieve the same results.
