Summer Scones

Joan Penney


Bright lemons just beg to pair with subtle blueberries!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is one delicious little scone. You can smell the lemon as you open the oven after baking. Lemon and blueberries are a fabulous flavor combination and perfect in this scone. The dried blueberries are sweet and plump and help the center stay soft and tender. Paired with the crunch from the sprinkled sugar crust, these scones are heavenly. A delightful treat!
