How To Make Blueberry Lemon Zest Scone

Craving for something sweet? Learn how to make the easiest blueberry lemon zest scone.

This week I made my favorite breakfast pastry, which is the scone. This weather has been really cold and I’ve drinking lots of tea, so what better treat to go with tea than a good old English scone. What is a scone? Scones are sweet or savory. They are perfect for coffee, tea, or great for baby showers, bridal showers, brunch, snack time, and my favorite Mother’s Day. Normally there are only 7 ingredients to make them. Here I am using a kit I found at the King Arthur Bakery In Norwich, Vermont. It is a charming store and cafe. As soon as I am driving up to the place I can smell the aroma of baked goods.

BLUEBERRY LEMON ZEST SCONE

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pats
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 1 Blueberry Scone Mix (King Arthur Flour)

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease or use parchment paper on a baking sheet or scone pan(as seen in this post).

Stir together scone mix and salt, then work butter, mixing until everything is crumbly. In a separate bowl stir together egg and milk. Add dry ingredients and lemon zest. If needed drizzle more milk to make the dough hold together.

Scoop dough onto the baking sheet or scone pan using 1/3 cup for each scone. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes until lightly brown. Remove from oven and wait 5 minutes and drizzle with glaze.
