Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze
I highly recommend this recipe, but be warned, these scones are very addictive. We had a friend’s daughter staying with us for a few days so I decided to make breakfast extra special by making Tyler Florence’s blueberry scones. They turned out much easier to make than I imagined and they tasted FANTASTIC. I loved the sweet blueberries with the sweet/tart lemon glaze. These scones were a huge hit with everyone! I tried one bite and ended up eating the whole scone, I couldn’t stop myself.

Blueberry Scones:
Adapted recipe by For the Love of
Original recipe by Tyler Florence
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, cold, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing on top of scones
  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Sift together the dry ingredients into a bowl. Using 2 forks, cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream. Fold everything together until just mixed; do not over work the dough. Fold the blueberries into the dough, taking care not to mash the berries.

Press the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form into a rectangle. Cut the rectangle in half then cut the pieces into half again, giving you 4 squares. Cut the squares in half on a diagonal to give you a triangle shape.

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Place the scones on a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat then brush the top with a bit of heavy cream. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let the scones cool a bit before you apply the lemon glaze.

Lemon Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 1 lemon, zest finely grated
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

Blueberry Scones with Lemon GlazePlace all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Place in the microwave and cook for 30 seconds. Whisk the glaze to smooth out any lumps then drizzle on top of each scone. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

    I’ve never made scones and have been wanting too. This recipe looks good and easy, I will be trying this soon. I have a question but not about the recipe. I’m wondering where you got the fork in the picture? I love that design. Thanks.

    Thanks. I’ll have to go there and see if they have anything similar. Is it just the photo or are the blueberries huge? They look ginormous in the picture.

    YUMMMM! I just made these for breakfast this morning, and they are so delicious. Too bad they’re so filling, or I would probably eat like 4.

    Do you think I could use fresh blueberries that I have frozen?

    Pam — September 2, 2014 @ 4:14 pm

    Yes, I think that would be fine. Don’t thaw them first otherwise they will turn your dough blue.

    Not sure if butter wasn’t cold enough or too much cream…I got scone cookies as the mixture too wet. Maybe cold bow/ pastry cutter and add cream just until a firm dough. Tasty!
