Blueberry Scones

Sharing is caring!

This easy Blueberry Scones recipe is so easy to make and is a wonderful way to enjoy the season. These are the perfect treat with your morning coffee or as a tea party food.

These are perfect for a tea party or as a dessert and go great with hot vanilla milk.

Hi Friends! It has been chilly here lately so I have been baking up some treats for a little comfort. Today’s recipe is perfect for a spring tea party, Easter brunch or family picnic. These are made with fresh blueberries, but you can make them with frozen if you do not have fresh on hand.

These are light and crisp, but not too crisp and are topped with a light lemon icing. 
I actually adore making scones, it is fun to put together the ingredients and cut up the dough for scones. I usually make full-size scones, but you can make smaller wheels and make mini scones.

timesaving tips to streamline recipes
  • You can make the dough ahead of time and store the dough in your refrigerator. I highly recommend making them the day or morning of and then you can bake them and have them ready to decorate later. 
  • Line your baking sheets with parchment paper. This really saves on clean up and makes the cookies easy to lift off of the pan.

I haven't had scones in a long time, but these caught my eye because I love blueberries. Pinned! I'm visiting from The Pin Junkie. If you need decor for St. Patrick's Day, I've got you covered with #8 at the party. Have a nice weekend!
