Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Yield:
8 scones
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Blueberry Scones:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut in chunks
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing the scones
  • Lemon Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 lemon, zest finely grated
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Sift together the dry ingredients; the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using 2 forks or 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 because their strong color will bleed into the dough. Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream. 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 and brush the tops with a little heavy cream. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until beautiful and brown. Let the scones cool a bit before you apply the glaze.

You can make the lemon glaze in a double boiler, or for a simpler alternative, you can zap it in the microwave. Mix the lemon juice with the confectioners' until dissolved in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water for the double-boiler method, or in a microwave-safe bowl. Whisk in the butter and lemon zest. Either nuke the glaze for 30 seconds or continue whisking in the double boiler. Whisk the glaze to smooth out any lumps, then drizzle the glaze over the top of the scones. Let it set a minute before serving.

PRO TIP!! This is so delicious but it needs some mechanical help.  You end up with a fairly dry pile that really doesn't want to stay together.  So put your pile on parchment, give it a good squeeze from every direction, run a large knife through the pile cutting in half/quarter/sixth, support each slice individually and gently scoot away from the center and repeat.  Now move your pile of slices gently to your baking sheet keeping the parchment in place the entire time.  Boom.  Delicious  item not reviewed by moderator and published
First time eating and making scones...this is heaven in my mouth. I didn't have heavy cream so i stirred milk and melted salted butter. So good!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made these scones...delicious!!!  I had blueberries left over and thought i'd try these..i saw the recipe many years ago but had not baked them sticking to the more tradional raisin scones..the lemon glaze was perfect with them..nowi have to find someone to share them with or i'll eat the whole lot.. Thank you Tyler item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delish!! First time making scones, they were a Hit!!  Love that they are so easy to make.  Friends and family just Love them, so I've been making them over and over.   item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quick pointers...  The recipe says 1/2 tsp of salt but the video says 1 teaspoon of salt, but then he adds only a pinch of it.  I did 1/2 tsp as written and it came out good.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay, so the basic of this recipe is good, but not exactly perfect. if you can see he doesnt measure out his cream.  so i added 2 and 1/4 cup of cream, 1 extra tablespoon of sugar, i added coarse sugar to the top of it, and cut 10 pieces out, then cut those in half to make bite size scones. results? PERFECT. i highly recommend you try this recipe out, just with my little changes.   item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was awesome! It was tricky not to break fresh blueberries because I still ended up breaking some. But tasted so good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would give 4.5 if that were an option. The scones are delicious. However, I did have to add 1/4 cup more cream. Also, I cut lemon juice 1/4 cup (still used about 2 cups powdered sugar. Next time, I am going to add an extra tablespoon of sugar to the batter (and maybe an egg instead of the extra cream). Also, the scones are large, so I might make 12. And definitely watch the video! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely the best scones ever! Friends drop by when they know I'm making them. Also cut them in half so I had 16 from each batch and served at a church "High Tea" fundraiser. You MUST use whipping cream. They are just ok with 1/2 and 1/2. And you only need 1/2 a recipe of glaze. I always use fresh blueberries that I keep frozen. They never bleed. My dough is sometimes crumbly-just use your hands, pat it and go! Thanks Tyler. Can't imagine making a scone with an egg! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Horrible. I followed the recipe exactly. The dough was like glue. Required a lot more cream. I couldn't spread it out to cut it so I had to drop the dough on the sheets. They looked horrible and didn't taste great. I threw them in the garbage. I hate wasting blueberries! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I honestly don't understand why this got such good reviews. The recipe is horrid. Dry, crumbly and tastes like flour. It needs a lot more cream than the recipe calls for. I would never make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These scones are fantastic! The first time I've ever made scones and it was pretty easy. However, my dough didn't mix as smoothly as Tyler's in the video. I had to add a few drops of extra cream and I had a hard time getting it to blend evenly without mashing the blueberries too much. Regardless, they turned out great. I used frozen blueberries because that' what I had. I made half the glaze recipe and it was pretty thin so I had to add more powdered sugar. I will definitely make these again and again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
How boring of me, to add yet ANOTHER 5 star review! But just had to, this recipe is just so perfect... and it worked just as beautifully using my own GF all purpose flour blend! Glaze is perfect, everything is perfect. A tip... I partially dehydrate my berries before using, still soft but not squishy, saskatoon berries or blueberries, fresh or frozen. It adds an extra step, but just imagine... concentrating that berry flavour just slightly! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These scones were dreamy! great consistency, great flavor. and that glaze..... PERFECTION. I ate way too many this morning. xD I followed the recipe exactly as written. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe is good and easy to follow, I used organic whole wheat flour and needed to add additional cream for them to hold together. Also doubled the recipe, and added about 1 tsp of dry ginger and 1 tsp sugar, could have added more cause it seemed like a nice addition but I barely tasted it. Could not press the dough together without bursting the blueberries, so they were a little taller than 1 & 1/4 inch on the sheet. Baked evenly, about 20-22 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
yummy yummy. This is my third time making this recipe. Didn't have enough heavy cream. Ended up substituting with half cup heavy cream and half cup buttermilk. Makes batter more difficult to work with, but the texture came out much softer and moist. The lemon glaze is a perfect addition. Will be making many more times item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent, will make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was my first attempt at making scones. I love this recipe! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used low fat Irish Butter instead. Wow, what flavor. I think that butter made them even better. And because I only had two lemons, I made only half of the glaze which was the perfect amount. I'm passing this one to all my friends. Thanks Tyler. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My first time making scones. They very amazing and very easy to make. I didn't use that glaze, loved them. Thanks Tyler! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe for a blueberry biscuit =). Lack of an egg and we'll just call these what they really are. It's a wonderful recipe. Half the glaze recipe - it makes way too much... or double the bi-scone recipe if you really want to make use of it all. The recipe as designed seemed to be short on a leavening agent/binder, I needed more heavy cream than called for. Could add the egg and make them proper scones and get that additional binder in the process. Also took me a bit longer than the 20 minutes at 400, might up the temp next time or just wait it out, but this is of course a location/weather/etc issue as much as it is a recipe tweak. Great, easy, amazing recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These scones came out flaky and buttery, they were so good. I cut down on the lemon glaze because there is a lot of sugar in it. Even when I cut down, there was more than enough glaze. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good! Mine took a tad longer to cook, but they were still amazing! And, I LOVE lemon so I added the zest of 2 lemons and it's really good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best scones I have ever had. Added 1 tbsp sugar to the recipe and substituted the cream for half and half. Also, only needed ~ 1/2 of the glaze. item not reviewed by moderator and published

MMmmMMM! My first time baking scones (though I'm a pretty seasoned baker). Substituted cream with soy milk and some left over light coconut milk in the fridge. Also used frozen blueberries (thawed and drained). The batter was not roll-outable, but I plopped them on a pan and baked them for 18 minutes, delish! Came out nice and soft, the lemon glaze was really nice. I only needed 1/2 of it though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was scared to try this new recipe, then I add frozen blueberries and started to bleed so right away I just add more flour and then a miracle happened that my Scones turned to taste so delicious for the first time!!, making the lemon glaze and putting on the scone the result was a BOMB!!....meaning Delicioso!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe. A few things bare mentioning: the dough will be sticking, but when you roll it on a floured board it will firm up just fine, it takes 30-35 minutes for mine to bake completely, and the lemon glaze recipe as it's stated is wrong; I used the zest and juice of one lemon with 1.5 cups of confectioner's sugar ... that's a good lemon glaze. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Batter was way, way, way to soft!!!! FAIL item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were wonderful! I used fat free half & half in place of the heavy cream and frozen blueberries I picked over the summer. I added the blueberries after mixing in the cream & handled as little as possible. I also skipped the cooked glaze and made my own with 1/2 C. Confectioner's sugar & lemon juice till I got a consistency that was both spreadable and slightly runny. Most of it stayed on the scones. My husband said these were the best he's ever had!

The BEST scone recipe, ever! I used pastry flour instead of all-purpose. Makes them even more crumbly. This will be the go-to recipe for scones from now on. Thanks, Tyler! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe exactly and these were awful. Very heavy and tasted like flour. :( item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delish. I've made these scones many times with chocolate chips instead of blueberries. They are amazing with or without the glaze. I Follow directions exact except for blueberries. The only problem is before cutting the dough it is a lot drier than it looks in Tyler's video. Therefore, I find the mixture needs a little bit more than 1 cup of heavy cream. I just drizzle some extra cream as I am mixing the dough until I feel it's enough. Then I brush the scones with the heavy cream and sprinkle with organic sugar then serve dusted with powder sugar. :_ I will try with organic blueberries or strawberries....thanks T item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent scones! Very tender crumb. I served them without the icing and they were fantastic without the extra sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family LOVED these scones but save yourself some time on the glaze. I used the rest of the cube of butter mixed with about 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and enough lemon juice to make it the consistency I wanted. Have already made these twice this week! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great texture and very easy to make. For the glaze I used 1 cup of confectioner's sugar, a little melted butter and a splash of vanilla, then whisked in lemon juice until I had the consistency I wanted. I glazed the scones 3 - 4 times starting while they were still hot and letting each coat dry. This way the glaze both sank into the scones and built up a nice icing on top. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great ,easy, quick recipe made with freshly picked berries. Used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of cream. For glaze, just mixed lemon juice from 2 lemons, 1 T. butter, and enough pwdrd sugar to make a 'frosting' - actually, kids did this part. No need to cook. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great texture and amount of sweetness! I started these before realizing I didn't have enough cream, so I used about 1/4 C cream and 3/4 plain yogurt and they turned out just fine. For the glaze, I substituted lime juice and only made half of the glaze and it was more than enough. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really easy and foolproof. I was a bit worried that the glaze would make the scones too sweet. But, they were great. My family loved them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe but like Chef #1230396 I could not get the glaze to thicken...I tried doing the same things but nothing worked for me. I ended up pouring it over the scones but most of it went into the pan below the scones to be thrown away. I would make this again...delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty. This was my first attempt at making scones, and this was exactly the kind I was looking for. I might have "overworked" the mixture a bit because I had some trouble getting it to combine well. After reading some reviews, I added a few TBS more heavy cream (should have read first!. Also, not sure if it was just me, but the icing did not thicken. I watched the video, and the icing looked thick and gooey. Mine came out thin -- nothing like it looked on the film, although I followed the recipe exactly (including waiting to glaze until after the scones cooled. I even added more powdered sugar to try to thicken it, but that didn't work. They still tasted really great though. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These are so delicious, I can't stop thinking about them. I will make them forever and plan on "wowing" everyone with them. I only made half the glaze, and I had still had some left.

I make scones pretty often for my kids and I made these yesterday and I must say that these are the best I have ever made. My kids LOVED the sauce. I served them hot with warm sauce. I am going to try the same recipe with chocolate chips today because my kids asked me to - minus the lemon sauce??? Or not. I have some left over and will try it since lemon and chocolate could be good together. But the texture of the scone was great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made Tyler's scones for the first time this morning before taking my children to school. I love his recipes because I don't need a trial run before serving his dishes, as they are always delicious. We are a family that loves to bake, and we really love scones, so I wanted to change it up. We didn't have blueberries or lemons, so I substituted blackberries and fresh squeezed orange juice and orange zest. Wow! They were delicious. I highly recommend the substitution. The scones were relatively easy to make, and my husband and children raved all the way to school. There was a great deal of the glaze left over, so I froze it for the next batch. I signed up to provide a pastry for a meeting this week, and I'll make a batch using the original blueberry version and another with my new blackberry recipe. Thank you, Tyler!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The lemon glaze did not thicken for us and made a soppy mess when brushed on. We halfed the glaze recipe based on other reviews and used the doubleboiler method. We are a high altitude (6500 ft so does the recipe need a thickening agent? item not reviewed by moderator and published

These were extraordinary. Taste light and fluffy like a scone should taste. The lemon glaze really sealed the deal for me.

I LLOOOOOVVEE this recipe!! I make it just as written only substituting frozen blueberries when I don't have fresh on hand and they always turn out amazing! I take these to any function I get the chance to and always get rave reviews. The scones are moist and buttery and the lemon and blueberry pairing is the perfect combination of sweet and tart. My favorite is after the scones have sat for a minute and soaked in the glaze. MMM! So delicious!!! Thanks Tyler! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Love scones and have always been terrified of making them... Had some extra blueberries, so said, why not? : This recipe is super easy and they turned out great. Tested at 15 then 20 and decided to leave an extra 2 minutes and they turned out great. Made half the glaze, could have done 1/4 of the glaze recipe... know better next time. Will definitely make this recipe again!!! Thanks Tyler!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very very nice!! I did not do the glaze but did sprinkle some sugar in the raw on there while they were still hot and I sprinkled them with a little water so it would stick...

Excellent Scone......These are now a family favorite in our book. I used Meyer Lemons (they were on sale and they tasted great! If the dough is too dry add some more heavy cream. I also used frozen blueberries instead of fresh.... ..Perfect and light.............better than cookies! Our new favorite! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mother in law is diabetic so she replaced the sugar with Splenda and the heavy cream with 1/2&1/2 and no glaze and the scones were Moist and delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was my first attempt at scones and I know that you shouldn't overwork the dough, but I had to put just a tiny bit of extra cream in it to keep the dough together, although it's still a crumbly dough, but it's supposed to be that way. They didn't look so pretty but they tasted delicious! I didn't use blueberries but I brushed on the lemon glaze and that made them even better. They had the perfect moist crumb on the inside and a nice crunch on the outside. Everyone in my book club oohed and aahed and ate seconds. I will definitely use this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added a little bit of lemon zest and some cranberries to the batter. I also halved the glaze and had plenty for the eight scones. These are far the best scones I have ever had and so versatile. It did take a little more then a cup of heavy cream. MAKE sure the butter is COLD but not frozen it takes to long to mix frozen. If need be you can put the dough in the refrigerator to stiffen it up a bit and then shape and cut into rectangles. If you put them in the refrigerator to long and the dough is cold you may have to adjust the time so be careful. I need no other recipe for scones.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have not made scones since my 7th grade cooking class. My daughter wanted a tea party for her 19th birthday (today! so I made these. HEAVENLY!!! They were so easy to make, moist and a huge success.

All I can say is FANTASTIC. I love, love, love this recipe. The are very easy once you do the recipe once. I can say that they would be a little too plain without the icing. I was a little skeptical of lemon with blueberry but it was really great. If you do not do the icing maybe add some sugar to the batter or do a butter and sugar on top. Again...these scones are 5 stars (or more if they allowed. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I joined this site JUST to leave a review about this recipe! I've made it four times now (the last time being an hour ago and have only made scones one time before finding this recipe. Let me just say, these are a FAVORITE of myself, husband and 2 young toddlers. My husband is so picky with food but raves about these scones. I follow the recipe exactly and each time they turn out perfectly. One simple suggestion I do have for first timers...when mixing the cream into the dry ingredients, I'd suggest just getting your hands in there gently rather than using a spatula. It's extremely messy and sticky but eventually comes together. I got a bit frustrated the very first time I made these, thought I was doing it wrong but then watched the video for this recipe and saw he just used his hands. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it's DEFINITELY a KEEPER! item not reviewed by moderator and published

First time making scones from scratch: Modifications made: -used half and half instead of heavy cream. -froze the butter before adding it to the flour mixture. -used 3 TBS sugar and added lemon zest to the batter b/c I didn't make the glaze. The batter was quite sticky, but I managed to form it into a log and cut it. The fresh blueberries I used were a tad sour(kinda out of season now. Great recipe. Will try some more variations (ie. egg, buttermilk, wheat flour and see how those compare. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good. Add 1 tsp fresh lemon zest and 1tsp vanilla to batter. Can always make into a round, put in refrigerator for about 20 minutes. The key is to keep butter cold. The pieces will melt when baked and keep scones moist. Take out and flatten to 1/4 inch; cut into 8 scones. With the glaze, just add liquid gradually until you get the desired consistency. Cut recipe in half if you just want a drizzle. Best to apply glaze when scones are totally cooled. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yum!!! Added lemon zest to the batter and a little more sugar, and double dipped in the glaze. Was worried about it not having egg in the batter, but these were fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
yummy! It was annoying to do the butter, but worth it they were light and scrumptious. I used the basic batter and just changed my add in i did different batches one with blueberries, vanilla, and a little cinnamon. I also did blackberries and vanilla. But totally skipped the glaze, i didnt want them all sticky. item not reviewed by moderator and published
GLAZE - I didn't actually make the scones but I made the glaze for a lemon cake. Glaze was way to thin, made according to recipe. I watched the video and noticed he uses a more than 2 cups and that his glaze was almost white. I just kept whisking more sugar in until desired thickness. Probably about another cup. Delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published

They came out great but the only thing I had a problem with was the glaze. I watched the video along while I was making it but it didn't come out as thick as it was in the video. It was very watery and not thick! What did I do wrong with it? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Dangerously delicious, easy and aaaamazing. Taste as good if not better than the ones I purchase at my favorite coffee house. Because I wanted a true glaze vs. an icing I only used 1/4 cup of confectionery sugar and cut the lemon juice and butter in half (and still had left overs. Will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely incredible. I had to add a little more cream like everyone else said. I added an extra tablespoon of sugar to satisfy my sweet tooth and even then it wasn't overly sweet. They were tender, soft and moist inside. I decided not to add the glaze because they were just too good by themselves. I zapped the flour/butter mixture in the food processor before adding the cream in order to the butter cold. Since these were for an early breakfast, I made the mixture from the night before, put the log in the fride and then baked them the next morning. Also a big thank you to Tyler for not using any eggs since I'm a lacto-vegetarian. Will make these again soon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added about a teaspoon of lemon zest to the scones. After mixing I patted it into an 8 inch cake pan then turned out on a lightly floured board. You will end up with a perfectly round circle that can be cut easily into triangles with a pizza cutter. Half the recipe for the glaze was enough. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yum-o. I made this with half n' half instead of cream as well as Smart Balance 50/50 butter, and they are still super good. I think the glaze would have worked out better if it had cooled a bit first to thicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow. I wasn't expecting these to be as amazing as they were. I added a bit more heavy cream and also some lemon zest to the batter. And the icing was perfectly made in the microwave, with only half the lemon juice the recipe called for. I also didn't have a problem with the frozen blueberries I used. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very delicious! I can only find frozen blueberries, so I used them anyway... the dough turned out a bit soggy so I shaped it lightly with my hands and the scone turned out tasty in spite of it all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good scones! The glaze was delicious BUT made way too much. You could easily cut glaze recipe in half, unless you want extra for something else. The glaze was very thin and sunk into the scones instead of adhering to the surface, like I would have rather had. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My kids love these scones. A few changes: I grate my cold butter with large cheese grater and get the right crumbly dry texture; sometimes have to add a smidge more cream; and I substitute blueberries for items my kids like. I usually divide the dry ingredients in half and make some with blueberries and some with butterscotch or chocolate chips. Kids also liked white chocolate chips and craisins as an add in. They are so fluffy and delicious warm out of the oven! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had the perfect vision of eating these early in the morning with my chai tea : I was slightly disappointed with the lack of lemon flavor. With the fitst bite I took I WISHED I had went with my instincts & added lemon zest to the batter :( The glaze is great but you still miss it in the scone. I will make these again but with some additional lemon & use half whole wheat flour to make them more filling. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The glaze was a nice touch instead of traditional marmalade. Would make in the future. I also had to add more heavy cream to the mixture as it was too dry to form dough. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are really delicious. They have the perfect amount of sweetness. When I was mixing the ingredients together, the mixture was dry. I had to add more heavy cream to it. But it came out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are great and so easy to make. Have made them twice now. MUST add blueberries before the cream so flour mixture coats the berries and prevents them from bleeding. Mixing berries in with hand vs spoon also helps keep berries intact. DID have to add a bit more cream (1/8 - 1/4 of a cup to get the dough right consistency. Easy to press out in a log to cut. I did not bother with the double boiler for the glaze. Just mix lemon juice and powdered sugar to your desired consistency ... whether you want them lightly glazed or more like icing. I just drizzled a bit of glaze over mine ... didn't coat them. Delicious. I even froze some iced and zapped them on low in microwave to defrost and they were still light, flaky and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These scones came out delicious! Very light, unlike most scones you see these days which are super dense. I did have a little trouble with some of the measurements in the recipe. I added an extra tablespoon of butter to the dough in order to get the texture/consistency he talked about in the video. I also had to add more cream in order to get a moist dough that I could form into the log shape for the scones. Despite these changes, the scones still came out very well. I made the glaze in the microwave as it mentioned for an easier alternative but was not able to get it to thicken up despite added a bit of extra powdered sugar. I would suggest maybe not adding the full amount of lemon juice right away in order to get the appropriate consistency. Despite some issues, they still came out delicious and I will definitely be repeating this recipe again soon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were delicious. I had to add a little more cream than the recipe called for because the dough was still very dry and crumbly. I also had to add a little more powdered sugar to the glaze, as it was a little runny. Just a few minor adjustments and they were fantastic.

bluemunday, read your post and thought, maybe try foil over sheet pan, then add wax paper. The Lemon Glaze, will thicken some as it cools down. Remember, this is a glaze not Icing, which is thicker. get a large enough container for the leftover glaze. Use a spatula to scrape the lemon glaze off the wax paper and into a storage container.
