Lemon Blueberry Scones

I'm sorry that the link I posted for Hazel's Simple Scones
is no longer good.  Here is the recipe I use for lemon-blueberry
scones--the sour cream seems to make them extra special.

Lemon Blueberry Scones

2 cups flour {I use half whole wheat & half white}
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon zest {or 1 tsp lemon extract}
1 stick unsalted butter, cold & cut into small pieces
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/2 cup sour cream
1 large egg
sanding sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Mix flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest in bowl of food processor.  Add butter and pulse blades until mixture looks like coarse meal--don't over process.  Add dried fruit and pulse.  Combine sour cream and egg, then add to mixture in food processor; pulse just until mixture starts to come together.  Transfer to lightly floured surface and pat into an 8-inch circle.  Sprinkle with some sanding sugar and cut into 8 triangles.  Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 - 20 minutes.


  1. Oh, goody! I'm headed out the door to the grocery right now anyway, am going to get the sour cream and make these despite the heat! (maybe this evening or in the early morning ) Thank you so much, Deb, I've been watching your blog for this recipe, they look and sound so good!

  2. Hi, this looks great. Just wondering if one could substitute frozen blueberries or must they be dried?

    1. I did use frozen blueberries once, and because of the extra moisture compared to the dried berries, I think I had to bake the scones longer...Deb

      Thanks Deb for that lemon blueberry scone. It looks and sounds so good. I'll give this to my daughter because she likes to make scones.
      I've been trying to get your patterns for Aunt May dishcloth and the waffle knit dishcloth, but have not been able to download them.
      Any ideas?

  3. Thankyou! I went looking at the link previously and came away disappointed. Yum, now i just need blueberries....

  4. I've been following your blog for a while as a lurker - I love your patterns, they're so simple. Would you mind if I pinned the recipe to Pinterest? No worries if you'd rather I didn't! just thought I'd ask first. Recipe sounds lovely, shame we don't have blueberries very often in the UK (or only very expensive ones). Will have to see if I can get some at our market on Saturday.

  5. Those scones look and sound wonderful; had to print the recipe to try!

  6. What a timely recipe, we grow our own Blueberries, and I just bought lemons. Thank you!!!

    I have a love affair with scones and anything citrus so these are right up my street! I made Sweet Lavender and Lemon Scones at the weekend, they're my favourite this year so far! Recipe is on my blog if you're interested.


  8. Trying out your scones today Deb, they look delicious.

  9. I love scones, and since today is a baking day for me anyway, I'm adding this deliciousness to the list. Thanks for the recipe!


Thank you for taking time to leave a comment--I love reading each and every one! I will try to answer any questions you have in the comment section. Due to the amount of spam, I am sadly no longer able to accept Anonymous comments....Kindly, Deb
