Lemon Blueberry Scones

Lemon Blueberry Scones

I have been wanting to make some scones for a while now.  Spring is definitely in the air and I think anything with lemon just screams spring!  These have a wonderful lemon flavor and the blueberries just burst in your mouth.  Wonderful!!  They also have some health factor with the whole wheat flour and yogurt.  Glazing is optional as they taste great without it but I recommend using the glaze to dress them up and give them the extra wow factor.

    Hi,
    Can I use red cherries instead of blueberries? Would it differ the taste much?
    Thanks

      Sure you can use cherries. It sounds like it would taste really good.
