Lemon Blueberry Drop Scones Recipe

I enjoy serving these fruity scones for baby and bridal showers. They're a bit lower in fat than other scone recipes, so you can indulge with little guilt.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) lemon yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, combine the yogurt, egg and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm scones. Yield: 14 scones.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
