Blueberry Lemon Scones

Lemon Blueberry Scones

Back in grad school, my sweet classmate rewarded me with these for teaching one of her kitchen labs. They’ve been a favorite of mine ever since.

Note:  This Recipe was slightly modified from Cookie & Kate, which was mildly adapted from Chocolate & Carrots.


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold unsalted organic butter
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup plain organic yogurt
  • ½ cup whole organic milk


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and whisk together.
  3. Slice butter and drop into dry ingredients. With a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour.
  4. Add blueberries and lemon zest and gently stir.
  5. Gently mix in milk and yogurt. You may need to use your hands to knead the last of the flour into the dough. If dough is too sticky, add more flour in small amounts.
  6. Form dough into a circle about that’s about an inch deep all around. Cut the circle into 8 slices.
  7. Separate slices and place on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes or until very lightly browned.
