Lemon-Blueberry Scones with Blueberry Glaze


Definitely not your traditional scone! These scones have a bit of whole wheat flour, a bit of Greek yogurt, a touch of cardamom and ginger--and a nice lemon-blueberry flavor that gets amped up by the addition of a blueberry glaze.

8 scones


  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, frozen

  • ½ cup whole-milk Greek yogurt

  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream

  • 1 egg

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, unthawed

Egg Wash:

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon water


  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries, thawed

  • cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, cardamom, lemon zest, baking soda, salt, and ginger in a large bowl. Grate in frozen butter using a box grater and toss until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Mix yogurt, cream, egg, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Add to the flour mixture to form a crumbly dough, stirring just until no dry clumps of flour remain. Stir in unthawed blueberries.

  4. Pour crumbly dough onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Press dough together firmly until it forms a cohesive 8-inch circle. Flatten top to ensure the circle is even. Cut into 8 triangular pieces. Arrange the pieces 1 inch apart on the same parchment-lined pan.

  5. Whisk egg and water together in a small bowl for the egg wash. Gently brush over the top of each scone.

  6. Bake scones in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  7. Use the back of a wooden spoon to press thawed blueberries through a fine-mesh strainer into a medium bowl to extract 2 or 3 tablespoons of juice. Discards skins and seeds. Whisk confectioners' sugar and lemon juice into the blueberry juice until smooth. Drizzle blueberry glaze over cooled scones.
