Lemon Blueberry Scone Recipe

I was strolling through the grocery store last week when what did I find? Organic blueberries! Not only did I FIND these rare treats…they were actually on sale! I was honestly shocked and started loading up my cart with these succulent little treasures. Of course, even on sale organic blueberries aren’t cheap but after a winter of eating nothing but bananas, apples and oranges I was in seventh heaven. I started browsing around on Pinterest for blueberry recipes but wanted something different than the average muffin or pancake. I discovered a blueberry scone recipe that looked easy so I thought I would give it a try. I have never made scones before but they looked like something my whole family would enjoy.

Lemon Blueberry Scones Recipe

This blueberry scone recipe uses fresh blueberries but you could certainly try it with frozen blueberries as well. I would suggest not thawing them out first or you may just end up with a big, purple ball of dough. I love the combination of blueberry and lemon in this easy scone recipe but if you want to omit the lemon I would suggest adding some vanilla into the dough instead. For the glaze I used  Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste which is why you can see little flecks of actual vanilla bean in the glaze. This stuff is amazing and I use it all the time! Depending on how you cut these, you can get 8 small or 6 large scones, more than enough for a delicious weekend breakfast feast!
