Photo: Oxmoor House

Rediscover a delightful morning treat in these gluten-free scones loaded with fresh blueberries and drizzled with a sweet lemon glaze. Instead of wedges, you can also scoop and drop the dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet for easier prep and more crispy browned edges.
