Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment or a silicone sheet
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and salt.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry blender or a heavy duty mixer until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and cream
  • Add to dry mixture and stir until a sticky dough is formed
  • Turn this shaggy looking dough out onto a lightly floured board
  • Knead gently, just until dough holds together, about 6 times
  • Divide into 3 equal portions and pat each into a 1" thick round that is about 6" in diameter
  • With a knife or straightedge, cut each round into quarters, creating 4 wedges
  • Place the scones about 1" apart on the prepared sheet
  • sprinkle with topping if desired
  • Bake in the center of the oven until crusty and golden, about 15 to 20 minutes
  • Serve immediately with butter and jam or cool on a rack and freeze in heavy duty freezer bags for up to a month.
