Blueberry Snickerdoodle Scones

Blueberry Snickerdoodle Scones Recipe l

It seems like every summer I get stuck on one fruit for all of my recipes. This summer is no different. Blueberries are it! They’ve been so good around here that I keep coming up with new recipes that I want to try before they are no longer abundant (and cheap!).

Since my list is always longer than what I can get to, I have to prioritize, and these blueberry snickerdoodle scones were at the top!

I’m so glad that I took the time to make them. They may just be our new favorite summer scone. It’s no secret that I like the snickerdoodle flavor, and it pairs so well with summer berries.

The insides of these scones are tender and bursting with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet blueberries! Of course, there’s cream of tartar to give it that classic snickerdoodle cookie tang.

The crackly top of cinnamon sugar gives these scones more of the snickerdoodle flavor and look. So, if you like the idea of having a cookie for breakfast, these blueberry snickerdoodle scones are for you!

All you need is your favorite cup of coffee or tea (and a bowl of fresh blueberries!), and you have the makings of a great start to the day!

I agree with you. I always get stuck on one fruit also. Mine has been strawberries this summer. But I think I need to change to blueberries because these scones look amazing. I am a huge scone fan! Loving these and can't wait to make them! ;)

The first homemade scone I ever made was a cinnamon blueberry and that's when I finally fell in love with scones. Up until then I always had crunchy ones that were not pleasing to me. But now these!? Must. Have. In. Belly.
