Blueberry Scones with Vanilla Glaze

My friend Shriya introduced me to Blueberry Scones when I was not a big fan of Blueberry. From then I became a huge fan of scones and blueberries. I adapted this wonderful recipe from Food Network and made a few changes to it. It is so simple to make yet an yummy snack. I felt that there was less sweet in the scones and I made this Vanilla Glaze to increase the sweetness. Here you go…

Preparation time: 35 minutes

Spice level: 0

No. of servings: 8


  • All purpose flour – 2 cups
  • Confectioner’s sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Baking powder – 1 tbsp
  • Unsalted butter – 5 tbsp
  • Heavy cream or milk- 1 cup (I used 2% milk)
  • Salt – 1/4 tsp
  • Egg – 1
  • Fresh Blueberries – 3/4 cup

For Glaze:

  • Confectioner’s sugar – 1 cup
  • Milk – 4 to 5 tbsp (I used 2% milk)
  • Vanilla extract- 1 tsp

Method of Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit.
  2. In a mixing bowl sift all the dry ingredients.
  3. Add soft butter to it and mix well.
  4. Whisk the egg with milk or heavy cream and add it to the flour mixture and gently blend everything together to make a dough.
  5. Fold in the blueberries gently. Be careful not to break them as they spit some colors.
  6. Spread some flour on a baking sheet and transfer the contents and flatten it to a large square.
  7. Cut it into four quadrant and then diagonally to make triangle shaped scones.
  8. Transfer each piece to another baking sheet and bake it for 20 to 25 minutes.
  9. Don’t worry if your dough is not perfect and is sticky. Spread it just like I mentioned and cut it and do not transfer it to another sheet. Just bake it in the same sheet for 20 to 25 minutes.
  10. To make the Vanilla glaze, add confectioner’s sugar to a bowl.
  11. Mix vanilla extract and milk together and add it to the sugar and make a smooth paste.
  12. That’s it. Vanilla Glaze is ready.
  13. Check if the scones are ready by just poking it with a clean toothpick or  skewer. It should come out clean.
  14. Sprinkle some vanilla glaze on top and serve.
