Berry-Lemon Scones
Servings: 12 Yield: 12 scones Prep 10 mins Bake 400°F 18 mins


  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 1 cup
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Make It

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Spread a large sheet of parchment paper on countertop.

2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add butter; mix with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gently stir lemon-juice-milk mixture into dough, along with blueberries, lemon peel and egg, just until combined.

3. With floured hands, pat half of the dough into a 7-inch circle on one end of the parchment paper. Repeat, with remaining dough, spacing 2 inches apart. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with sugar. Cut halfway down but not through each circle, 6 wedges for each round. Slide paper with dough onto baking sheet.

4. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack to cool slightly. Pull apart at cut lines. Serve warm or at room temperature.
