For the Scones:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup buttermilk cold
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk for brushing
  • Coarse sugar for topping, optional

For the Lemon Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


Preheat Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Dry Ingredients:

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add Butter:

  • Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Add Blueberries:

  • Add frozen blueberries

Add Wet Ingredients:

  • In a separate bowl, mix the cold buttermilk and vanilla extract. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients. Use a fork or your hands to gently mix the dough until it just comes together. Be careful not to overmix.

Form the Dough:

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead it a few times to bring it together. Pat the dough into a circle about 1 inch thick.

Cut the Scones:

  • Use a sharp knife or a bench scraper to cut the circle into 8 wedges (like a pizza). Alternatively, you can use a round biscuit cutter to cut out individual scones.

Prepare for Baking:

  • Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with the 1 tablespoon of buttermilk and sprinkle a little coarse sugar over each scone if desired.


  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown on top.

Make the Lemon Glaze:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, fresh lemon juice, and lemon zest until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more lemon juice if needed.

Glaze the Scones:

  • Allow the scones to cool slightly on a wire rack. Drizzle the lemon glaze over the warm scones.


  • Enjoy the scones warm or at room temperature.
