Royal Wedding Scones

My friend Kate had a great idea, as I am sure many girls in love with Prince William had, to host a Royal Wedding Party.  Now, I am not one of those girls who follows gossip too closely, but when the royal wedding came around I was all over it.  I mean, who wouldn’t be?  The heart throb prince was marrying a beautiful commoner, every girls dream!  So, for the party, she had a group of girls over, all dressed up in their best royal outfits, fit with crowns and and sapphire ring replicas, with a blue hawaiian punch.  Fantastic!

So, what better treat to bring to a royal gala than scones!  I found the perfect recipe on Annie’s Eats for blueberry lemon scones.  To, die, for.  I have heard mixed reviews about people thinking scones are difficult or they are the easiest delicacy to make.  I tend to lean towards the easy side, BUT I have to try and remind myself that the pats of butter in the dough mixture WILL melt during the baking process.  Side note of why I have to remind myself: if you do not use a lipped pan the butter will melt and spill over into your oven, and possibly set off the fire alarms.  I will learn…eventually.

I like blueberries in muffins, or pancakes, or these scones.  They give it a nice texture, and bring out the lemon flavor in a great burst of freshness.  Definitely a nice springtime treat to enjoy at brunch, or the next royal wedding ;P
