Blueberry Lemon Scones

Blueberry Lemon scones Recipe
light and fluffy,
sinfully glazed,
repeatedly asked "did you make these yourself?.... they are ah-mazing"
Blueberry lemon scones
these are my go - to recipe for any morning tea, lunch, mummy group, family catch up event etc.... so I pretty much make these at least one a week
....why ?
because they are Delicious, easy and hardly any dishes ...simple


1 1/2 cups of self raising flour
1/2 cup of fine sugar (  icing or caster sugar )
100 grams of butter, cold, chopped
1/2 cup of milk
a splash of lemon essence
hand full of fresh blueberry's
milk for brushing
icing sugar and lemon juice for glaze
preheat oven to 180 deg c
line baking sheet with grease proof paper  
Sift dry ingredients into a mixing bowl
Add butter,
Combine with fingers till it looks like bread crumbs
Make a well in the centre and add the milk and lemon essence
Mix with a butter knife * this is important as you don't want to over work the dough.... no one likes a hard scone
Add the blueberrys and gently fold into the dough.... * dont over work the blueberrys otherwise your scones turn grey :/

turn onto lightly floured surface and gently mould into disk shape
cut scones ( i keep mine small, probably about 4 cm diameter... easier for little hands)
and place on baking tray
brush with a little milk
and bake for 20 Min's


once completely cooked and cooled you can then glaze the scones, it just gives them a little extra lemony hit
 in a smaller bowl ad about half a cup to a cup of icing sugar, then continue to add small amounts of lemon juice and stir until prefer ed consistency
..... if its a bit runny add more sugar, if its too thick add more juice ( genius stuff really )
 drizzle over scones, briefly chill in fridge
serve to the masses , sit back and enjoy the compliments
ps; i will be posting the gluten free and dairy free alternative to this recipe soon :)
