Lemon Glazed Blueberry Scones // Tried and Tasty

What started out as a vision of moist and delicious whole wheat blueberry muffins somehow transformed into: Lemon Glazed Blueberry Scones. Here’s how it went down: I found a healthy blueberry muffin recipe but wanted to make a few alterations. Everything seemed to be working well up until I pulled them out of the oven. Not so moist. Not so delicious. Not sweet at all. Not happening. So I went back to the drawing board. For whatever reason my heart was set on blueberry something or another. I have no idea how I went from point A to point B, but the point is these scones are out of this world mouth-watering amazingness. Seriously.

In the last week I’ve made these half a dozen times. I just about have the recipe memorized at this point. The first couple of times I was tweaking it to make it perfect, and the next few times were for anyone that would eat them. I find the best place for feedback is taking my treats and things to work. They fell in love with them… and I knew they would. No really. They are that good people. So good that going into it I was confident that they would be a surefire hit.

Lemon Glazed Blueberry Scones // Tried and Tasty

You can chose to make these as big or as small as you like. I chose to make them mini, because I love mini things. Not only are they absolutely adorable in the smaller size, they feed a lot of people and allow you to continue to be calorie conscious. Unless you’re like me, and see that the smaller the size the more you are allowed to eat! If you aren’t a lemon fan, or don’t care to glaze them, these are just as fantastic with the lemon and glaze omitted entirely.

I prefer the scones warm right out of the oven, but they are still wonderful the next day. I wouldn’t guess they’d be around much longer than that – but if so, you may want to throw them in the fridge and keep them no longer than a few days. Enjoy!

    I love everything about these scones! 1st that they are scones, 2nd that they have fresh blueberries, 3rd that they have a lemon glaze! One of my favorite combos!

      Thanks Amber – I have some dough left.. and I’m a little scone’d out, I may need to bring you some!

    I love scones! and when you add fresh fruit to it, it just makes it so yummy! I love that you made a lemon glaze for it,. Seriously delicious! PS: Congrats on your TV spot and your site looks amazing :)!

      This was my first time with the fresh fruit, but not I’m on a quest to make more variations :) Lemon glaze = perfection! And thank you so much for your compliments! I love 2News and I LOVE my new site!!!

      I wish there was so much more time. In the end I was so sad it was over and wanted it to keep going. Too much fun, too little time for sure. I too am dreaming of spring.. we can dream together :)

    Pinned and eager to try! This might be a dumb question but I don’t bake a lot. :) Why 2 types of flour and does it really make a difference? I usually just have all purpose on hand. Also, do you know if the dough can be prepared, formed, then frozen? I’ve done that with other scone recipes. Thanks so much for the new website and all your work to get your recipes perfect and delicious. :)

      Awesome! That’s not a dumb question at all – there’s no such thing when it comes to cooking and baking! I don’t like to cook with refined flours, so I’ve eliminated them as much as possible. I only add a little bit to make the scones still fluffy and light rather than dense and heavy. All-purpose would be fine to sub 100% in this recipes. I don’t know for sure about the freezing, but I would guess you could and they would work out perfect. You are certainly welcome! Thanks for checking out the recipes :) I sure do love sharing them!

      I’m excited for you to try them Holly – they are so delicious. And thank you so much, I’ve loved the opportunity that I’ve had being on the news! So fun!

      Thank you Jonie! It’s really not too bad, I was a little nervous at first that I was going to have squished blueberries all over the place but as long as you are pretty gentle they will all stay in tact pretty well. Give it a try! Or.. maybe I’ll bring you some to your party ;)
