Lemon Blueberry Scones


Here is a delicious recipe for anyone who loves lemons or blueberries . . . or scones. This would be delightful for a mother-daughter tea.

2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter with knife or fork until mixture is crumbly. Stir in dried blueberries and lemon zest. In small bowl, mix together sour cream and egg. Stir into flour mixture and work together until it forms a ball. (I use my hands for this.) Divide into eight pieces and place each in lightly greased scone pan. Press to form into the pan. Bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then remove from pan.

To make icing, in small bowl combine powdered sugar, milk, and lemon juice. Mix together well. Drizzle icing over warm scones. Serve with hot tea. Enjoy!
