Treat yourself to a blueberry lemon scone! You deserve it!

The day I made these Blueberry Lemon Scones, our eldest son had come over for a visit.

I’m going to put it right out there (with no pretense whatsoever) he doesn’t visit nearly enough…and you can tell him I said so! LOL

However, this particular day his timing was impeccable because the scones were just cool enough to ice and just cool enough to pack into containers for him to take home (after my photo session, of course).

Lucky kid!

Maybe, just maybe, if I make these scones on a weekly basis, we’d see him a whole lot more often.

At least a mom can dream, right? 😉

  • Flour a knife or bench scraper and gently cut the disc into 8 equal pieces.
  • Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for approximately 20 – 25 minutes, or until the scones are deeply golden in color and when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool the scones completely on a wire rack.
  • Once the scones are completely cool, whisk together confectioners sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and a touch of heavy cream to form a thick icing.
  • Drizzle the icing liberally over the cooled scones.
  • Break the scones into triangles, and enjoy!
