Blueberry & Orange Scones by Tammy

For the scones you will need:

2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup white sugar
5 tablespoons unsalted cold butter, cubed
1 cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
½ cup whole milk, plus more for brushing scones

For Orange Glaze you will need:

Juice of 1 orange (fresh)
1 cup confectioner’s sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees:  

Line cookies sheets with parchment paper.

Sift together flour, baking powder, and sugar in a large bowl.  Add cold cubed butter.  Mix until a course dough forms, using a pastry blender or fork.

Next, add the frozen blueberries.  NOTE: If you use fresh blueberries fold gently to prevent blueberries from bleeding into dough.  Stir in orange zest.  Make well in the center of dough and pour whole milk.  Gently fold and knead until well incorporated.  Make sure not to overwork dough.  

Press dough onto lightly floured surface into a rectangle.  Cut the rectangle on a diagonal for triangle shape.  Place the scones on the cookie sheet and brush each scone with a little whole milk.  Bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden.  Make sure the scones cool before you apply glaze.

In a small saucepot, combine fresh orange juice and confectioner’s sugar on medium heat.  Whisk glaze until the sugar has completely dissolved.  Drizzle over scones and let it set before serving.  Enjoy!!!

It has been such a joy to blog for you today!!  It has been quite some time since I have shared a recipe with you.  As the beautiful Autumn weather sets in, you will be seeing a lot more posts from the Baking Gypsy!!

Toodles for now,


  1. Is there anything better than a scone in the morning? This would go just perfectly with my morning cup of coffee. Thank you so much for sharing, my friend!

  2. These scones looks absolutely perfect with the glaze, yummy!

  3. Just beautiful - not too sweet and warm and welcoming. Singing with a pot of coffee. I just cannot do purchased scones - they're always dry. Worth the time to make these.

  4. Catherine... Blueberry and Orange, what a great combination! We both love scones. There is only one bakery within 30 miles of our home that makes good scones and we always score a couple when were in that area. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. Very good, Tammy! They look delicious with those luscious blueberries!

  6. I just love scones with a cup of tea..I have never tried a glaze over them though, I really like the sound of that :)

  7. It's so unkind of you to torture me with these astonishing inviting temptations, Catherine...You have no compassion on my bottom :))).
