Lemon Scones

Oh how I  love lemon…
especially lemon desserts.
That wasn’t always the case though,
you see when I was younger it was all about the CHOCOLATE I wouldn’t choose anything but CHOCOLATE!
Now I’m glad I grew up a bit and branched out because now I LOVE lemon!
Lemon Scones
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 T lemon juice
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 2 eggs
  1. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk, lemon juice, zest and extract along with one egg and one egg yolk (reserve other white) Mix until blended. Knead on a floured surface for a rectangle then cut into triangles. Brush tops with reserved egg white. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 -25 minutes until golden brown.
  2. *updated: I now bake my scones at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. I find they rise up a bit higher.
Lemon Icing:
Mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 3 T lemon juice and 1 tsp lemon extract and tint if yellow if desired. Then drizzle on top of scones when they are cool.
