Lemon Blueberry Scones

These Lemon Blueberry Scones are perfect for spring!

Scones are a great go-to for Sunday morning breakfast.  They adapt to any season just by changing up the fruit/flavorings and they get everyone out of the kitchen fast so you can get on with your plans. (No Mom with an ulterior motive here, nope). In terms of work, they’re a little more labor-intensive than pancakes, mostly because you work the butter into the flour but once that’s done and they’re in the oven you get to relax for a few minutes so… woo-hoo!  As a bonus, the smell of something good baking is very effective for getting everyone moving.

These Lemon Blueberry Scones from A Joyfully Mad Kitchen are perfect for springtime.  If you need a family-friendly jump-start recipe on a busy day, these will definitely do the trick. Enjoy!
