Bisquick Lemon Scones Recipes

I have to be honest when I say the first time I tried scones; I was not a fan. They were dry and completely tasteless, in my opinion. I’m happy to say I have since developed a liking for them thanks to one of my grandmother’s recipes and the slight tweaking of others. Not to mention that these scones all have lemon added to them, which is as everyone knows my absolute favorite ingredient to bake with.

Lemon Blueberry Scone Cake

Lemon Blueberry Scone Cake

As kids, my brother and I would comb the ditch and woodland areas, looking for wild blueberries to bring home. Our mom loved to bake, and would use our tasty finds to bake muffins or a pie depending on how much we could pick. I have adopted my mom's love of baking and a lot of her recipes, and thought it would be fun to add lemon in with these blueberry scones.

Final Thought

If you’re not really sure whether you like scones, I would suggest trying one of these recipes. The Bisquick gives these scone recipes a much lighter composition compared to the traditional dense ones made with flour.
