These are pretty much Summer wrapped up in a tasty little treat! Such bright and fresh flavors.
A few months back, I tried my hand at homemade scones (please forgive the photos..). Before then, I was always intimidated by the thought of making these delicate little treats but I’m here to tell you it is so easy! The only trick to making scones is that you need to be extra gentle and not over-work the dough because that will result in a tough, brick of a scone. Yuck. Be super gentle and you’ll have tender, perfect slightly crumbly scones every time. Homemade scones are so much better than store bought, not to mention a whole lot cheaper!
When I made these Fresh Orange Scones for Mike on his birthday, you guys totally fell in love with them as much as we did. Ever since I made them (about 20 times since then…..), I have been wanting to switch out the orange for lemon but just never got around to it. Well, my friends. I got around to it last week and threw some blueberries in the mix for some ultra fresh flavors and they were ridic.
Lemon and blueberry just screams summer to me. So fresh, so perfect together. There’s something about the combination of lemon and blueberry together that I love ohhh so much. The sweetness of the berries and the tartness from the lemon compliment each other so well. These are pretty much Summer all wrapped up in a tasty little scone.
Mike, who is not a breakfast eater loves when I make scones for breakfast and will scarf down 4 at once if I don’t stop him. I love making these on the weekends, for brunches or for birthdays for a special breakfast treat!
