Fresh Blueberry Lemon Scones

Fresh Blueberry Lemon Scones are wonderful! Scones are great for breakfast or with a cup of hot tea or coffee in the afternoon. This is a great recipe using fresh blueberries and a touch of lemon. Serve these delicious scones with lemon curd or your favorite jam. You can make your own lemon curd, which I often do but I always have a jar of ready made lemon curd in my refrigerator, just in case the ‘scone’ urge hits me.

What is a Scone?

Scone [SKOHN; Br. SKON] This Scottish quick bread is said to have taken its name from the Stone of Destiny (or Scone), the place where Scottish kings were once crowned. The original triangular-shaped scone was made with oats and griddle-baked. Today’s versions are more often flour-based and baked in the oven. They come in various shapes and sizes. Scones can be sweet or savory. When savory, serve scones with soup or stew.
