Lemony Spinach and Artichoke Brie Penne Pasta.
I’m declaring these the scones of spring.
I mean, they have all the best spring game players, blueberries, Meyer lemons, and poppy seeds…AND they are best eaten for brunch, which I feel is totally a spring thing. Ok fine, brunch is an any time of the year thing, but I associate it most with spring thanks to Easter and Mother’s day.
Anyway, these scones are the perfect spring treat, and yup, they’d obviously be great for summer too! They’re extra buttery, flakey, LOADED with blueberries and drizzled with the sweetest lemon poppy seed glaze that should probably be put on everything…well anything sweet that is. Ahh, actually…story?
When I was testing and photographing this recipe, I was also working on a mango and kale salad too. I had a ton of scones and a ton of kale so I sent the kale and scones over to my parents house in hopes they would both get eaten. The good news is that the scones were loved by everyone and gone within the day…I mean, that was to be expected though. My parents house is full of carb lovers and littler Asher could eats buckets of blueberries, so I knew these would be an obvious hit. Anyway, I also sent up a some extra lemon poppy seed glaze. When I asked my dad how everything was the next day, he said it was all delicious and that he especially loved the dressing for the salad. Only thing was that there was no dressing for the salad…
Yeah, you see where this one is going? He put the glaze for the scones on the kale, which is probably why he liked the kale so much. A little sugar with your greens, huh? Luckily there was probably only a total of two tablespoons of the glaze left. My guess is that it was really freaking delicious on that kale. Lemon + poppy seeds + sweetness + kale = good combo!
Also, only my dad would put a glaze meant for a sweet scone on a kale salad. <–he’s just THAT guy…no attention to details…
OKok, but enough about the kale salad farce. I need to tell you about these blueberry lemon poppy seed scones and how they are the best thing you’re gonna make this week!
First things first, like most scone recipes these are so easy and can be ready in around thirty minutes. They require one bowl for the scones and one for the glaze and zero fancy ingredients. And the ingredients may even be ones you have on hand right now. Flour, butter, buttermilk, blueberries (fresh or frozen), lemons, etc. all pantry staples for me!! Well, I don’t always have blueberries, but I do try to keep some frozen in the freezer at all times for things like smoothies and muffins, and yes…scone making!
Oh, and if you don’t have buttermilk on hand, I’ve found coconut milk works great too, even regular milk will do the trick!
These scones are honestly some of the best, SO super buttery, which for me is very important when it comes to scones. Also important? A major crumb factor. They need to be super moist, flaky and crumbly at the same time. <–aka a balance between, buttery, flakey, and moist…yes, these are those perfect scones!
And then obviously, these scones need to be loaded with blueberries. I’m not sure there’s a better scone than a blueberry scone…especially one with a lemon poppy-seed glaze!
So bottom line: these are easy and quick and you need them in your life. Preferably today (sometimes Tuesday’s just need something sweet added to them)! Oh, but this weekend would be great too, and definitely for both Easter and Mother’s Day, because all holidays are better with buttery scones.
For real though, do you see those flakey layers and burst blueberries in that photo above!?!? With the glaze just dripping all over it? Yeah, that’s what I’m talkin about!

I can’t even, mmm, TOO GOOD.
Looks so good! I want to make these but could I substitute all-purpose flour with almond flour to make it GF? Would that make a big difference?
So sorry, I would not recommend that. I think a gluten free flour blend might be okay for you to try! Let me know if you have any other questions! xx
Just made these! First time making scones. Super yummy, thank you!!

Hi Tieghan! Could you recommend a good non-dairy alternative for the buttermilk?
You should be okay to use a dairy free milk. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it!! xTieghan
