How to make it

  • I
  • Instructions:
  • 1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut in the butter.
  • 2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon zest and juice, cream, and egg.
  • 3. Stir egg mixture into dry ingredients, just until a dough starts to form. Knead a couple times until the dough holds together.
  • 4. On a lightly floured surface, gently press dough into a circle, about an inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges (I use a pizza cutter to quickly and neatly cut the wedges!).
  • 5. Place scones on an ungreased baking sheet, not touching each other, and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven and let rest on the sheet for 5 minutes.
  • 6. Prepare the icing by mixing the powdered sugar with enough lemon juice to make a drizzling consistency. Add a drop or two of yellow food color if desired.**
  • 7. Place scones on a wire rack. Drizzle or brush icing over warm scones. These scones are delicious hot, but I think they taste even better the next day, when the lemon flavor has permeated the scone even more!

    These sound absolutely heavenly. Love lemon and love scones. Groan. I must, must make these with that glorious sour lemon glaze. Will have to eat lettuce for a week.
