Easter Brunch Week cannot is almost over and a scone recipe is necessary! When I think brunch, I go right to scones! Blueberry scones are not traditional Irish scones.  I have got to share that recipe with you another day! The blueberries make these a sweeter scone.  We call them tea scones because my family loves them with a nice cup of tea!  As we continue our Easter Week journey, I was so excited to receive a Scone and Cornbread Maker from Nordic Ware! I make a lot of scones and cornbread and using the scone bread maker makes such pretty and perfect scones! Blueberry Scones in a Nordic Ware scone maker.

Blueberry Scones

Scones are one of my favorite things to bring to a Brunch or Breakfast Buffet. My family loves scones and I love making different varieties! My glazed cranberry orange scones are a stable in the house. Blueberry scones are another long-time favorite! I love it when the family comes and and takes in a big whiff and they say, "SCONES????" They love every scone recipe! Fresh blueberries are a great fruit to use in scones. They are hearty and hold up well when baked. You can also use either frozen or dried but fresh blueberries are my favorite! 

Can blueberry scones be frozen?

Yes. Once baked, place the scones on a baking sheet in the freezer. Let them set about an hour, then they can be placed in a freezer storage bag until ready to use.

How do you reheat blueberry scones?

Reheat the scones in the oven at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes. Wrap the scones in aluminum foil for reheating.

What is the best way to defrost scones?

Place the frozen scones in the fridge to defrost. Reheat for about 5 minutes.  blueberry scones with fresh berries on a white plate.
