  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a large baking sheet.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Mix together lemon yogurt, butter, and egg in a separate bowl. Stir yogurt mixture into flour mixture until just moistened. Fold blueberries into mixture.
  4. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 15 to 18 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, stir together confectioners' sugar, lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest in a small bowl until glaze is smooth.
  7. 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.

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 blueber...
