Combine all your dry ingredients, flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in your food processor. Pulse a few time to combine well. Add in your frozen butter and pulse until you have a breadcrumb texture.

Transfer over flour mixture to large bowl and add wet ingredients eggs, yogurts, and vanilla. Fold mixture until just incorporated. Do not over mix! This will create a denser scone. (We want those frozen butter crumbles intact when it goes into the oven to create little melted pockets in our scones.) Very gently fold in the blueberries.

Blueberry Scones-3

Flour up your hands and place dough on a well-floured surface. Pat down into a rectangle shape 1” thick.

Blueberry Scones-4

Cut into triangles or desired shape. Place scones on greased baking sheet spaced about apart. These will grow. Bake in 375 degree oven for 25 min or until brown. You can check your scones with the toothpick test.

Prepare your glaze while these are baking or cooling.

In a bowl sift in your confectioners sugar and mix in butter. Pour in lemon juice, zest and mix well.

Glaze your scones once cooled a little and sprinkle with raw sugar which adds a nice crunch. Serve warm and enjoy!

  1. I don’t have a food processor, can i just cut in the butter til crumbly, then add the wet ingredients?

    • Yup, the butter won’t get as small but it will work okay! It’s just a bit hard to cut butter small when it’s frozen.

  2. Yum! My husband loves blueberries and would love these scones. They look delicious and easy to make.

  3. What an awesome recipe for when the ladies come to visit and have with coffee or tea.
