  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Mix together lemon yogurt, butter, and egg in a separate bowl. Stir yogurt mixture into flour mixture until just moistened. Fold blueberries into mixture.

  • Drop batter by heaping tablespoons 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 15 to 18 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, stir together confectioners' sugar, lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest in a small bowl until glaze is smooth.

  • Drizzle glaze over warm scones and serve.

Cook's Notes:

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries.

Be careful not to overmix the batter or the scones will come out dense and hard.

These are a delicious drop scone! I have been making them for some time, a favorite go to breakfast bread at this house. They are quick to make & relatively healthy if you use low-fat yogurt. The recipe is easily adaptable depending on season and personal taste - in addition to lemon yogurt and blueberries, I have used peach yogurt and chopped frozen peaches, vanilla yogurt and chopped dried cranberries - and I have halved the recipe. They are always fluffy, tender and so tasty! Read More

Not bad but not my favorite scone tasting. It turned out better than how the dough felt "folding in the blueberries".I might try it again. Read More

I had never made scones before and this recipe was not only easy it is delicious! I got 16 scones using a 1 tbs cookie scoop. They were done in 18 minutes. I waited 3 minutes and then I glazed them. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

next time i will definitely have the lemon yogurt on hand instead of using plain with lemon juice mixed in turned out good (and even a scone disliking friend took leftovers home) but they wanted more lemon flavor. will have fun with different fruit combos in the future since the basic recipe works so well.

They are good. I had to use vanilla yogurt as it was what I had. Now honestly it might need a hint more sugar but it will take a bit of experimentation to get it to my taste. Also my blueberries were not that sweet but I still tried the recipe as is. I would recommend to use your judgement with the sugar depending on the sweetness of the fruit. Despite my one little mistake of forgetting to melt the butter they came out soft and were so the next day. Read More

Love this recipe cuz it's delicious, simpler and uses less butter than most. I used low fat yogurt since that was all I had. The dough came out quite dry for me, and I'm not sure why. I had to form scones by hand to keep them from falling apart. The glaze recipe is easy and wonderful after I added some lemon zest. I will use this base recipe with other contents in the future, like lemon, almond or cinnamon (sans lemon). Read More

Omg my very first scones and they are amazing!!!! My husband and I love blueberries so when I saw those I had to try them. They are healthier then a lot of other recipes I read and so easy to make even for complete beginners like me. Before I could take a picture, 2 scones already disappeared so it's definitely a hit! My husband said those were the best scones he ever had. I made 9 medium size scones. Thanks for sharing will make multiple variations for sure :) Read More
