Blueberry scone with lemon curd

We had an excess of lemons in the fridge, so my wife made a batch of lemon curd. It only used up two lemons, but that’s two less than we had before, and lemon curd is freaking delicious, so it’s a win-win.

You gotta have something to go WITH the lemon curd, obviously, so she made a pound cake and a batch of blueberry scones. The blueberry scones were excellent, just the thing to have with my Saturday morning mug of coffee and a dollop of lemon curd. I wasn’t a fan of the pound cake; we agreed that the recipe wasn’t great. Another time, maybe a lemon tart or lemon meringue pie would be better, sice they really highlight the lemon curd.

I ended up having the scones for breakfast three days in a row. Scones are a nice, easy thing to make first thing in the morning when you want something freshly baked for breakfast. Unfortunately, there are a lot of terrible scones out there, but this recipe had a bit more loft than most.
