lemon blueberry scones

05 Oct

My daughter asked for lemon blueberry scones for breakfast last night.  Sure.  I can do that!

Scones are really easy to make and the flavor combinations seem endless.  Bakingbites.com has a fine-looking recipe which I have adapted here. Loaded with lemon flavor, these are fantastic and a breeze to put together.  And Anna loved them!

Lemon Blueberry Scones

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh, dried or frozen)

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Blend dry ingredients.  Cut in the butter and process to a wet sand consistency.  Mix remaining ingredients.  Toss flour mix and wet ingredients just until they begin to come together.  Knead a couple turns, then turn out on lightly floured surface and divide into two disks.  Divide each disk into six wedges.  Bake 17-22 minutes until golden brown.  Serve warm.  Makes 12.

Recipe adapted from Baking Bites.

Using the Weight Watcher’s Recipe Builder, I calculated each scone having 4 PointsPlus if using fresh or frozen berries or 5 PointsPlus each if using dried blueberries.
