Blueberry Scones Recipe
I LOVE SCONES! (I said it in all caps to properly convey my total adoration and worship of the mighty scone.) What about you? I mean, what’s not to love about scones? They’re not cake, cupcakes, or bread.. but they’re these little rounded triangles of happiness and always so delicious no matter where you enjoy them. We made Strawberry Scones recently and now, with spring temps and fresh produce available, I had to try making these Blueberry Scones as well, especially since we’ve got quite a few blueberry lovers in this household.
Look at those gorgeous blueberries in those scones! Gah! We totally lucked out when we went to the store, we got such GORGEOUS blueberries, almost oversized ones! We snacked on a few to gauge their flavor (you know you HAVE to taste test fruit before baking with it, ahem) and man, these sure packed an incredible punch! This perfect scones recipe that beautifully integrates any of your favorite fruits + these farm fresh blueberries makes this Blueberry Scones recipe a truly special one to make for your family!

Homemade Blueberry Scones
Gather the kids around for this one, have ’em wash their hands, roll up their sleeves, wear an apron (so the flour or sugar doesn’t get on their clothes), and get the kids in the kitchen baking these homemade Blueberry Scones alongside you! I am a HUGE believer in getting the kids in the kitchen beginning at a young age. The earlier you start cooking with kids, the easier it’ll be as they become young adults to cook their own meals, prepare their own food, and be 100% comfortable taking care of their own meal needs once they leave the “nest,” you know?
Tips to Make the Best Blueberry Scones from Scratch
- Use a sifter to sift your dry ingredients, particularly the flour. This ensures the ingredients will blend completely and leaving you with a better, well-mixed final product.
- Using very few ingredients to make this incredible recipe, I recommend using unbleached all-purpose flour, real butter (Kerrygold is the best), and fresh organic blueberries.
- Gentle hand-mixing using a wooden spoon in this recipe is preferred, no electric mixer needed.
- Use care when mixing the ingredients to not pop the fresh blueberries upon stirring.
- To add a little something magical at the end, baste your freshly prepared Blueberry Scones with butter and sprinkle gently with granulated sugar to make them sugar-topped. It’s so delicious when served this way, and it adds a little something special!
How to Make Blueberry Scones
To make this gorgeous homemade Blueberry Scones recipe, you will need the following ingredients on hand:
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Granulated sugar
- Cold butter
- Blueberries (fresh, preferably)
- Heavy cream (35% fat or more)
You will also need the following kitchen tools:
- Baking sheet
- Parchment paper or reusable silicone baking mat
- Bowl set, as you will need multiple bowls
- Pastry cutter
- Whisk set
- Wooden spoon
- Serrated knife or pizza cutter
- Pastry brush
- Wire rack
Cut butter into slices.
Using a pastry cutter, blend butter into dry ingredients until crumbs start to form.
Fold in your freshly washed fresh blueberries, being careful not to pop any blueberries.
Form a well in the middle of the ingredients and pour in heavy cream, ½ cup at a time. Mix until a dough forms, being careful again to not pop any of the blueberries. Pat dough onto a baking sheet, forming it into a flat circle about 8 inches in diameter. Cut dough with serrated knife or pizza cutter to create 8 triangular shapes. Separate triangles from each other and re-place gently on lined baking sheet.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes on a wire rack. Serve and enjoy!
