Ah, scones. Probably one of the most underrated breakfast or afternoon treats in America. These Blueberry White Chocolate Scones are fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. Then topped with a Lemon Glaze that pulls the entire pastry flavor together these will be a new must-make recipe for any brunch occasion. Scones are a bit more work than your average muffin or cookie recipe, but they are so much better and in my opinion a little more fancy and special. So fire up the tea kettle and get ready to enjoy a delicious sweet treat!

Tips For The Best Blueberry White Chocolate Scones

Don’t Overwork the Scone Dough

When combining the liquids in with the dough try your best to mix until just combined. Over-mixing will lead to the scones being dense, and no one wants that.

Let The Scones Chill

To get scones to have that light and airy inside and crisp outside you will need to let the scone dough chill. The scones come out the best when the dough is cold going into the oven. To chill place the cut dough into the freezer for 30 minutes, or the fridge for 2 hours or overnight. Personally, I like the freezer method because it is the fastest.

Common Blueberry White Chocolate Scones Recipe Questions

Can I Make the Scone Dough Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can. You can make the scone dough the day before and and cover and refrigerate overnight. Next, shape the dough the next day when ready to bake.

Can I Freeze These Blueberry White Chocolate Scones?

Yes, the cooked un-glazed blueberry white chocolate scones can be frozen for up to 3 months. When you are ready to eat them thaw in the fridge overnight and then reheat the glaze.

How Long Do Homemade Blueberry Scones Stay Fresh?

These homemade scones will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days. See above tip for freezing for a longer shelf life.

Can I Use a Different Kind of Fruit Besides Blueberries?

Sure! Some other great options are blackberries, raspberries, strawberries or cherries. Obviously using a different fruit will change the flavor from the original recipe.

Can I Use This Recipe for Mini Scones?

Yep! To make these easy scones small shape two equal circles of raw dough instead of one. Then cut each circle of dough into 8 even triangles for a total of 16 scones. To bake them cut the bake time down to 15 minutes, or until golden brown on the top.
