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
