Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

These scones are bursting with blueberries and have the perfect balance of sweet and tangy thanks to the lemon glaze. They come together in minutes with very little fuss. I always use frozen blueberries for this recipe as they tend to be larger and sweeter than fresh and I add them just before baking so the dough doesn’t turn blue.

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or grease with butter. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and mix together well. In a separate bowl, stir together the butter, eggs and milk. Pour into flour mixture, and combine until a sticky dough is formed. Using a spoon, scoop 1-2 tablespoons of the dough and place it onto the cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Press the blueberries one at a time into each scone, so that they are covered by the dough at the sides. Bake for 15 minutes until golden. Meanwhile, combine the butter and lemon juice in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Add the icing sugar and stir until the glaze is smooth. It will thicken a little upon standing. When the scones are ready, remove them from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes. Then drizzle the lemon glaze over top.

About Theresa Toth, Easy Peasy Eats

I have been cooking almost my entire life. My passion for food and feeding people has always had a special place in my life and in my twenties I combined my two loves—entertaining and cooking—into a successful catering business. Becoming a parent presented me with the challenge of creating new ways to provide the meals my family deserved with the limited time I had in the kitchen. I started developing new recipes that were much less time consuming but still delicious and nutritious. That’s how Easy Peasy Eats was born!
