Eggless Blueberry Lemon Scones | Blueberry Scones

Blueberry Lemon Scones, a buttery and melt in your mouth delicious scones with a hint of lemon flavor. 

Scones are one of my favorite baking dishes and i absolutely love the texture of the scones and also its mild sweetness. It's  perfect for mid-morning snacking as well as tea time snacks.

While blueberries are in season, a local store in our area carries blueberry scones in their baked goodies section and we like those scones so used to buy it often. Though i make scones at home very rarely, i absolutely love the warm scones. Hence i was determined to make these blueberry scones at home and was waiting for the blueberry season :-)

As it was a new recipe to me, as usually I browsed for the recipes and tried a few and finally satisfied with this recipe. I love the addition of buttermilk and lemon zest in this recipe, it gives a nice flavor and mild tangy taste to the scone which elevates the taste of the scones to a whole new level.


In this recipe , i have used the fresh blueberries which are really sweet. But you can also use the frozen blueberries and make these scones at any time of the year :-)


I have used unsalted cultured butter for great flavor. If you're using salted butter, leave the salt in the recipe and also you can use sweet butter too. 
Make sure that the butter is really cold. If your kitchen is warm or you're baking these on a hot sunny day, then cut the butter into cubes and freeze it . Then take it out only at the time of making the dough.

Making the dough

Unlike any other dough, you don't need to knead the dough for scones, just mix it all together and when it all comes together, stop mixing. 
More kneading would form the gluten in the dough which will affect the texture of the scones and make it chewy like bread. The scones should be soft yet crumbly not chewing.

Ok, now let's check out how to make blueberry scones.
