Blueberry season is in full affect in New Jersey. This week at my local farmer’s market; my husband and I bought a case of blueberries; that’s 12 pints!! We froze a lot of them for future baking, smoothie making, and snacking; but I had to do something with these fresh, plump, sweet blueberries.

I searched Pintrest once again (always my go-to) and I came across Lemon Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze. They looked amazing so I thought; I have to try and make these. Most of the ingredients were staples in my house; so it was an easy choice.

I put my apron on and went to work! And let me tell you; they were SOOO easy! Of course I shared with some friends and co-workers and they were a hit. I also think they would be a great addition to a breakfast/brunch you may be hosting before your town’s 4th of July parade on Thursday.

I have been looking all over for this recipe I once had one kind of like it but they turned out gross so I wanted a new one and now that I found it and made it I'm in heaven and hubby said they taste just like home (Ireland ) I'm so happy thank you and I'm sure his tummy will thank you for years to come.
