The BEST Scone Recipe

This is by far the best scone recipe I have ever had!!
Although I would love to take the credit, I got this recipe from my friend Jenny of Jenny Cookies. She hosts a Bake Along every Monday night, and beyond the delicious recipes the other great thing is it's a step by step guide to baking, and when you have a daughter who loves to bake it's nice to have someone else teach her every now and then. If you know what I mean...

These were pretty easy to make, and the key to getting them perfect is the frozen butter. They are moist, yet still have that "scone" consistency. They certainly didn't last long in our home. We also made the same recipe and subbed out the blueberries for raspberries and they were just as delicious.

Blueberry - Lemon Scones


2 cups Flour
1/3 cup Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter, frozen
1/2 cup berries
1/2 c sour cream or greek yogurt
1 egg
1 tsp of  lemon zest 


1 cup Powdered Sugar
3 Tbsp Milk or Lemon Juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place the middle rack up one level. 
Using a whisk and bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. Once mixed place a cheese grater into bowl on top of dry ingredients and grate 1 stick of frozen butter into the mixture. Use your hands to mix butter into flour mixture. Then add berries and lemon zest, lightly toss together with hands. 

In a small bowl whisk egg with sour cream or greek yogurt. Pour into flour mixture and mix with a fork until the mixture starts to stick together into a dough like consistency. 

Lightly flour surface, take mixture and press down into a 7-8" disc of dough. Take a sharp knife and cut disc into 8 triangle pieces. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and place scones onto cookie sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes.  

In a separate bowl mix together the powdered sugar and milk into a shiny glaze for the scone topping. 

Once scones are out of the oven you can place on a cooling rack or leave on the tray. 

Drizzle glaze over top of scones and devour! 

I don't think you can go wrong with any berry choice with this recipe. It's almost blackberry picking season, and I usually make a really yummy blackberry pie with a hint of lime, I think that 
combo could be the next scone I try! If berries aren't your thing you can even try omitting 
berries all together and just make a plain scone to have with jam and butter. 
I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.

Happy Baking!
