Lemon Blueberry Scones

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by erinn in tbay

My family loves these, they get eaten up right away. I like them with butter and honey right out of the oven. The recipe came from my grandmother.


What a great scone!!! The only change I made was to use buttermilk instead of regular milk. Easy to make and wonderful to eat!
