Moist and flavorful Lemon Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze are definitely my best scone recipe and one of my most popular posts here on The Love Nerds! Whether enjoyed on a warm spring day or on Christmas morning as a holiday recipe, these scones are always the perfect addition to your table!!
Blueberry Lemon Scones are a holiday favorite!
Prior to a few years ago, I had only ever enjoyed a scone on a continental breakfast platter which means they were always a little dry and bland. I decided to start tackling homemade scone recipes, starting with my spiced pumpkin scone recipe. They are one of the first fall recipes I make every year and never disappoint as they are soft, moist (sorry if you hate that word!) and full of great flavor! Definitely better than any scone recipe I had ever tried before!
One day, my mom and I were talking about making a lemon cake, and she sent me home with blueberries the same day, so it got me thinking about trying homemade Lemon Blueberry Scones. Lemon and blueberries might be my favorite fruit pairing – sweet and tangy at the same time with a gorgeous burst of color! I just love how blueberries turn purple, almost magenta, after being baked.
My husband, who pretty much never eats breakfast, eats breakfast when these are in the house. I once even caught him in the kitchen at 10 o’clock at night trying to eat his second scone of the day for dessert, which is only a problem because then there would be less for me! These Blueberry Lemon Scones do make a tasty breakfast, snack and dessert in my world!
As happy as I am that he loves these Lemon Blueberry Scone, I want to make sure there are plenty for me to enjoy with some fresh fruit and coffee. Perfection for me! Utter perfection. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day so having tasty treats in the house like this make life better! They’re better than Cheerios any day. Consider making them any time of year for Easter, Mother’s Day, Christmas or New Year’s Day Brunch!
My favorite part of this recipe might be the lemon citrus glaze on top! You could easily use milk instead of the lemon juice if you don’t love the citrus flavors as much as I do, but I personally think it would be a shame. It’s definitely meant to be a Blueberry Lemon Scone with Lemon Glaze.

Lemon Blueberry Scones with a Lemon Glaze is an Easy Scone Recipe for Every Season!
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup milk I use skim
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoon lemon zest
- 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/2 cup powder sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Pinch of lemon zest
Preheat oven to 400 F.
In your stand mixer bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Cut the cold butter into smaller pieces and put on top of the dry ingredients.
Using your paddle attachment, mix the butter and dry ingredients together. Work your way to medium speed. You want the butter to break up into small little pieces. BE PATIENT! It might take a little time but the butter will break down into the mix.
If needed, you can stop part way through, use a fork to mix things around and break things apart a little more, and mix again using the paddle attachment.
Stir in milk, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest until moistened.
To add in the blueberries, I patted the dough out on a lightly floured counter and folded the blueberries into the dough. Be careful not to squish to avoid the blueberries bleeding too much.
Then, by hand, form the dough into a rectangle. You want it to be about an inch thick. Cut down the middle, dividing the dough into two rough squares. Then, cut diagonally for a criss cross with both of those squares. This will give you 8 pieces.
Place one-two inches apart onto a cookie sheet. I liked to place them on parchment paper or baking mat.
Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and drizzle with glaze.
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Add a little more (or less) lemon juice in order to get the consistency you need.
