How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Blend together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, salt, lemon zest and basil.
  • Cut in butter until the texture resembles a coarse meal.
  • Alternately, you can use a processor to do this. Just pulse until you get small pea-sized lumps.
  • Mix together lemon juice with the milk and add to the scone mixture. Combine until dough just comes together.
  • On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into a disc shape (with about an 8 inch diameter), leaving the center slightly higher.
  • You can use a pizza cutter and just slice the disc into eight pieces like a pizza.
  • Place scones on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Brush with remaining tablespoon of milk and sprinkle the tops lightly with some of your sugar.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
  • Let cool a few minutes before serving.
