This Blueberry Scones recipe is all over Pinterest, with the original recipe linking back to Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa). Ina used dried Strawberries, but that didn’t sound too appealing to me. The recipe I found uses blueberries and orange zest, but I thought it would taste even better with lemon zest. And it is really delectable. No low fat here – but it is Friday and time to plan a weekend brunch… Or just an indulgent breakfast. These Blueberry Lemon Scones are to die for. Enjoy!

Dig in! I know people like to serve scones with butter and jam etc., but considering the amount of butter (and cream) in these, and blueberries – I would suggest eating them as they are. Believe me – these Blueberry Lemon Scones are delicious by themselves. Yum! Serve with some tea or coffee.

Happy Weekend!
