Several children in the Primary III classroom worked together to make Lemon Blueberry Scones. Our Primary classrooms are comprised of chldren from ages approximately 2.9 years old through 6 years old.

The students made the scones for the school's neighbors, as a thank you to them for being very patient during the time our playground renovations were happening.

The Primary III children were very understanding about not being able to try the scones themselves and even said, "these are for our neighbors to thank them. They are not for us!"

Here is the recipe:

Lemon Blueberry Scones

2 cups flour

1/3 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

8 tablespoons frozen butter

1/2 cup dried blueberries

zest of one lemon

1/2 cup sour cream

1 egg
 

Mix together all the dry ingredients, including the lemon zest and blueberries. In a separate bowl, mix together the egg and sour cream. Cut the butter into 1 tbsp squares, and add to dry mixture. Use a pastry blender until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add sour cream/egg mixture until incorporated. If it is too wet (which ours was), add flour 1 tbsp at a time.

We used 1 heaping tbsp, 1 inch apart, and baked for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
 
To make a glaze, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 3 teaspoons lemon juice and drizzle on top of scones when cool.
 
 
We hope you'll try this recipe and enjoy making it as much as we did!
