Scones bake much better when they are an even thickness. Pat your scone dough into a circle cake pan to ensure you have a consistent thickness. Turn the scone dough onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper before you cut it into wedges.

For the Lemon Glaze
- Prepare the Lemon Glaze while the Einkorn Scones are baking. In a small mixing bowl, add the powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice. Mix. Add up to 1 more tablespoon of lemon juice to reach the desired consistency. You should be able to drizzle the glaze.
- When the scones are finished baking, take them out of the oven and let them cool for about 5 minutes.
- After 5 minutes, drizzle the lemon glaze over the scones while they are still hot. Enjoy your Einkorn Lemon Blueberry Scones warm or cold!
- Use cold butter.
- You can add double the amount of lemon zest. I love mine with a robust lemon flavor!
- Bake the scones on parchment paper. This will keep it from sticking to the pan and makes clean up a breeze.
- Pat the scone dough in a greased circle cake pan. Turn the pan onto parchment paper before cutting. This ensures the scones are a consistent thickness and cook evenly.
- Pull the scone dough wedges apart from each other before cooking. The scone dough will rise and spread a little while baking.
