These Blueberry White Chocolate Scones are the perfect brunch or breakfast recipe for lazy Sundays, Mother's Day or Easter! The dough can be frozen, prepped ahead of time or made into mini scones!
Ah, scones. Probably one of the most underrated breakfast, brunch and afternoon treats in America. These Blueberry White Chocolate Scones are fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. The blueberry and white chocolate scones are then topped with a Lemon Glaze that pulls the entire pastry together.
These homemade blueberry lemon scones 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 blueberry and white chocolate scone!

How to Make Scones
Making the Dough for Blueberry White Chocolate Scones
- Combine all your dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Set Aside.
- Cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry cutter. Use your hands to combine.
- Add buttermilk, milk, vanilla extract to the bowl and mash/stir using your hands or a spoon. DO NOT OVER MIX
- Add in white chocolate chips and blueberries and fold in until just combined. The finished scone dough will be crumbly.
Cutting and Baking the Blueberry Lemon Scones
- Take the finished dough and form into a circle about an inch thick.
- Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 8 pieces. Place each piece on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
- Let the scones chill in the fridge for 2 hours, or the freezer for 30 minutes.
- Once chilled, brush scones with buttermilk and bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.
- When blueberry and white chocolate scones are finished top with Lemon Glaze.
Don't Overwork the White Chocolate Scone Dough
When combining the liquids in with the blueberry and white chocolate scone dough try your best to mix until just combined. Over-mixing will lead to the blueberry lemon scones being dense, and no one wants that.
Let The White Chocolate Scones Chill
To get the blueberry and white chocolate scones to have that light and airy inside and crisp outside you will need to let the blueberry scone dough chill. The white chocolate scones come out the best when the scone dough is cold going into the oven. To chill place the cut white chocolate and blueberry scone 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.
Yes, you can. You can make the white chocolate scone dough the day before and and cover and refrigerate overnight. Next, shape the scone dough the next day when ready to bake.
The cooked un-glazed blueberry white chocolate scones can be frozen for up to 3 months. When you are ready to eat the homemade blueberry lemon scones thaw in the fridge overnight and then reheat the glaze. Also, you can warm the scone in the microwave once thawed if you want it a bit warm.
These homemade blueberry lemon scones will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days. See above tip for freezing the scones for a longer shelf life.

Mini Scones Instructions
To make these easy blueberry scones mini, shape two equal circles of raw scone dough instead of one. Then cut each circle of scone dough into 8 even triangles for a total of 16 scones. To bake the blueberry lemon scones, reduce the bake time down to 15 minutes, or until golden brown on the tops of the scones.
Some other great options are blackberries, raspberries, strawberries or cherries. Obviously using a different fruit will change the flavor of the scones from the original blueberry and white chocolate scones recipe.
