Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: breakfast
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 22 minutes
Chilling Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 57 minutes
Servings: 8 scones
Calories: 350kcal


For The Scones:

  • 2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup (67 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick, 113 g) unsalted butter cold and cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup (½ pint) fresh blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • ½ cup (120 ml) heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg

For The Icing:

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (57 g) confectioner sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon Juice or more to adjust consistency


  • Combine dry ingredients. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. 2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour 1/3 cup (67 g) granulated sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Add butter. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or rub in with your fingers, until the mixture has the texture of coarse meal. 1/2 cup (1 stick, 113 g) unsalted butter
  • Add mix-ins. Fold in blueberries and lemon zest. 1 cup (½ pint) fresh blueberries 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • Add wet ingredients. Whisk together heavy cream, egg, and vanilla. Make a well in the dry ingredients, and pour in the heavy cream mixture. Stir lightly with a wooden spoon or spatula until dough comes together. Dough will be sticky and shaggy looking. ½ cup (120 ml) heavy cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 large egg ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Knead dough. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and gently knead dough together a few times. I press down on the dough into about 1/2" thickness, then fold in half. I repeat this about 3-4 times. Do not overwork the dough, you just want to incorporate the flour and bring it together.
  • Shape scones. Pat dough into an 8" circle. Cut into 8 wedges. Transfer to baking sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Prep oven and pan. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Bake the scones. Bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 15-18 minutes. Transfer scones to wire rack to cool.
  • Make lemon icing. Combine icing ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Adjust consistency if needed. Drizzle cooled scones with icing. 1/2 cup (57 g) confectioner sugar 2 tablespoons lemon Juice



  • Storing: Store leftover scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • Freezing: You can place the unbaked scones on a cookie sheet and freeze. Once they are solid you can place them into a zip-loc bag. When ready to bake, there is no need to thaw first before baking. Just add on a few minutes of bake time. To freeze baked scones, bake first then allow to cool completely before freezing. Freeze solid then you can wrap each individually or place into a zip-loc bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature before serving.
  • Icing: If you do not prefer icing, you could always make an egg wash and brush on the scones before baking and sprinkle some sanding sugar on top.
  • Blueberries: Fresh is best but if using frozen, do NOT thaw and you may need to increase the baking time by a few minutes.
