Blueberry Scones with Lemon Drizzle

Our son, Brandon baked blueberry scones with Lemon Drizzle for tea-time at our family get-together. “Don’t overwork the dough,” is his key to excellent scones. These scones are just as delicious placed in the refrigerator overnight and served the next day. I know, because I did that very thing. Enjoy~

 

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Drizzle

Ingredients~

2 cups  All Purpose Flour

1 Tbs.   Baking Powder

1/2 tsp. Salt

4 Tbs.   Sugar

5 Tbs.   Unsalted Butter (cold, cut in chunks)

1 cup    Blueberries

1 cup    Half & Half

Lemon Drizzle~

1/2 cup  Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)

2  cups   Confectioner’s Sugar (sifted)

1    Tbs.  Unsalted Butter

Directions~

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Sift together the dry ingredients; the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs.
  • Fold the blueberries into the batter. Take care not to mash or bruise the blueberries.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in the half & half. Fold everything together just to incorporate; do not overwork the dough.
  • Press the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 12 by 3 by 1 1/4 inches.
  • Cut the rectangle in 1/2 then cut the pieces in 1/2 again, giving you 4 (3-inch) squares. Cut the squares in 1/2 on a diagonal to give you the classic triangle shape.
  • Place the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Let the scones cool before drizzling the lemon drizzle.

Lemon Drizzle Directions~

  • In a microwave safe bowl, mix the lemon juice with the confectioner’s sugar until dissolved.
  • Whisk in the butter.
  • Microwave the Lemon Drizzle for 30 seconds.
  • Drizzle over the top of the scones. Let it set a minute before serving.

      Hi, sweet Theresa,

      How thoughtful of you to write. I have to admit that it is nice to be missed. I started teaching younger women in parenting and marriage Bible Studies. Studying God’s precious Word in order to teach and lead Bible Studies each week took up a great deal of time, so I had to discontinue blogging. I now consider my blog an online book. The Lord is faithful to still lead mothers/wives to my blog, even when I stopped adding posts. I hope and pray you are doing well, Theresa. Thank you so much for praying for me. I am praying for you and your family, today.
      With much love,
      Linda Hoover

    Hi Linda ~ I still check back. Maybe someday you’ll be back to blogging. 😉 The young wives/mothers you are mentoring are blessed to have you. <3 My Spiritual mama, Brenda, has been such a blessing to me in my life.

    Wow, over a year since my last comment. I’ve been going through the blogs I’ve enjoyed reading. I’ve found quite a few that no longer exist. Glad to see yours is still up. I think I’ll go back and read some of your past posts. I hope this finds you and your family doing well. God bless you.
