Lemon Scones

Happy March First!
Today is the start of meteorological Spring!
The Spring flowers are blooming, the grass is green and the birds are chirping....somewhere, but not here.  No Spring flowers.  No green grass.  In fact, I can't even see the grass under the piles of snow. And even the birds have left to go somewhere warm and sunny.  So, I will continue to put on my layers and layers of clothing and hope for warmer times with a pot of tea and these super, duper delicious Lemon Scones!

Lemon Scones are delicious with a warm cup of tea!
They have a sugary coated exterior and a moist inside that is perfect with some butter and jam.
And, scones are surprisingly easy to make.  Check it out...

Adapted from Biscuits and Scones by Elizabeth Alston
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut up
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 Tbsp lemon zest
2 tsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place flour, baking powder, lemon zest and salt into a large mixing bowl.  Add pieces of butter and use mixer to blend until mixture looks like fine granules.  You can use a pastry blender and do by hand, but I was able to use a self standing mixer on the low setting using the bread attachment.  Add the sugar and continue to mix on low.  Add the milk and mix just until a soft ball of dough begins to form.  Remove from bowl and knead 10-12 times until dough is smooth.  Form dough into a 6-8 inch circle.  Cut pie shaped pieces (about 6-8).  Place wedges on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Mix 2 tsp lemon juice and 2 Tbsp sugar.  Top each scone with about 1/4 tsp of the lemon mixture.  Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until lightly browned on top.  Remove from oven, cool slightly and serve.

Breakfast, tea time or mid-morning snack will be extra special with these Lemon Scones!

  2. Thanks to Doctor Razor for the Great miraculous work he did in my life with his herbal remedy. I have been living with this virus and I have shared with my partners my situation because they deserve to have a choice of whether they want to change being with me or not. I unfortunately did not have a choice in this matter leaving me vulnerable and now faced with this virus for the rest of my life or until a cure was discovered.I refused to take the Medical drugs my PCD had told me to take, I surrendered to my fate, because I was careless. On Aug 23, 2020, I came across Doctor Razor herbal medicine. I browsed about the authenticity of This Doctor, I got to see several Testimonies regarding his works from people he had helped with his medicine. I reached out to him and told him my problems, after we spoke he promised to help me out. I started using his herbal medicine which he sent to me Via the Courier Delivery, and asked me to take the herbal medicine for 18 days. which i did. I am delighted to let you all know that I Got cured of Herpes Virus, after the Medical Doctor had confirmed this with the test results, when I went for a medical check up after completing the Herbal Dosage Of 18 days.
