Blueberry Lemon Scones

Blueberry Lemon Scones

Scones are a special treat! In this recipe, I use a sweet dough with the addition of blueberries and top it off with a glaze. They are sweet with crumbly edges, packed with juicy blueberries, filled with fresh lemon zest and topped with a delightful lemony icing. Made with our Pie Crust Mix, you can substitute the blueberries with any another fruit. These scones bake up with soft centers that are moist and have a crunchy golden top. Make them allergy-friendly too. Bon Appétit!

Gluten-free Blueberry Lemon Scones

PREP: 30 minutes | BAKE: 20-25 minutes | Makes 8 Scones

Ingredients

For the Scones

  • 2 cups Pie Crust Mix, (plus more for hands and work surface)
  • 6 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon zest, (about 1 lemon)
  • 2 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt 
  • 1 stick butter, frozen or 1 stick Earth Balance
  • ¾ c. heavy cream or coconut whole milk (plus 2 tbsp. for brushing)
  • 1 ½ tsp. GF pure vanilla extract
  • 1 heaping c. blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • coarse sugar (optional)

For the Lemon Icing

  • 1 c. confectioner's sugar
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice, (about 1 Lemon)

Directions

  1. PREP: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. MIX: Whisk Pie Crust Mix, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Grate the frozen butter using a box grater. Add it to the pie crust mixture and cut butter in with a pastry cutter until the mixture comes together in pea-sized crumbs (If you don't have a pastry cutter, you can use two forks or your fingers). Place in the refrigerator or freezer while you mix the wet ingredients. Whisk ¾ cup heavy cream and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Drizzle over the flour mixture, add the blueberries, then mix together until everything appears moistened.
  3. MAKE: Prepare work surface with plastic wrap for easy clean up. Scrape dough onto the plastic wrap surface and with floured hands, work dough into a ball. If it’s too sticky, add a little more pie mix. Press into an 8-inch disc and, with a sharp knife or bench scraper, cut into 8 wedges. Brush scones with remaining heavy cream and for extra crunch, sprinkle with coarse sugar. 
  4. BAKE: Place scones on lined baking sheet 2-3 inches apart and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. (Making with Earth Balance, refrigerate at least 45 minutes.) Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and let cool for a 5-8 minutes before topping with lemon icing.
  5. TOP: Whisk the icing ingredients together. Drizzle over warm scones.

How to Make Scones Ahead:

Overnight Instructions

  1. Prepare scones through step 3. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Freeze Before Baking

  1. Freeze scone dough wedges on a plate or baking sheet for 1 hour. (Pro-tip: Once relatively frozen, you can layer them in a freezer-friendly bag or container.)
  2. Bake from frozen, adding a few minutes to the bake time, or thaw overnight, then bake as directed.

    Hi Judith, We do not have a print option available at this time. We are looking for a way to make them printable. I recommend taking a screen capture then print it. ~ Katherine, The MinusG Baker
