Lemon Blueberry Scones

With everything so crazy nowadays, I really try to take pleasure in the little things. My idea of heaven now is to haveĀ a couple of spare hours to just sit and enjoy a book all cuddled with my hubby and kitties. Said heaven must also include a hot beverage and scones. Since we had a little free time this weekend I decided to whip up a yummy batch of lemon blueberry scones! All of my scone recipes are based on my mom’s incredible recipe becauseĀ it is simply the best. It is such a simple, quick and wonderful treat to whip up.

I started on the dough for the lemon blueberry scones first. It came together in one bowl with just a whisk and a spoon, which I loved. I whisked the dry ingredients together first. Then I poured in fresh lemon juice and tangy buttermilk to bring it all together into a sticky dough. Finally, I gently stirred in my juicy blueberries!
Since the dough was so sticky, it was important to lightly flour my work surface before I turned it out. I also just used my hands to press it out into a circle. If I used a rolling pin it would have completely decimated the blueberries! Then I cut the disc into 8 equal wedges to form the lemon blueberry scones.
Those lovely lemon blueberry scones baked for 15 minutes to get puffy and gorgeously golden. The sugar I sprinkled on top became like a crust and it was glorious!

I sat with hubby and the kitties to enjoy the lemon blueberry scones immediately. Oh my goodness, they were really heaven with my tea as I curled up and enjoyed my free time. The bright lemon and juicy hits of blueberry were so perfect together. I got to lose myself in the 4th book of the Outlander series while I enjoyed the scones too on my comfy couch in yoga pants. It really is the small pleasures, people! xoxo

Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour plus additional for the surface
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar plus additional for sprinkling on top of the scones
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 a lemon zested
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 and line a sheet tray with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Then combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and lemon zest in a mixing bowl. Whisk them together to aerate the dry ingredients. Then pour in the lemon juice and buttermilk and stir everything together just until it becomes a sticky dough. Finally, gently stir in the blueberries. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured, clean surface and bring it together into a ball.
  2. Gently press the ball out into a flat disc that it about 1/2 an inch thick. Use a bench scraper dipped in flour to cut the disc into 8 equal wedges. The easiest way is to cut the disc into quarters, then cut each quarter in half. Place the wedges on the baking sheet and sprinkle them all generously with more sugar on top. Bake the scones for about 15 minutes, until they become puffy and golden. Take them out and let them cool for a couple of minutes, then serve them warm immediately!
