This is one of my favorite scones.
Enjoy an have a tasty Sunday !

3 1/2 cups flour (whole wheat or white)
6 tablespoons sugar
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lemon zest
2/3 cup butter or margarine
2 egg, beaten
6 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Heat oven to 400F.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Cut butter into flour mixture by hand or with a fork. Stir in egg, milk and lemon juice and add additional tablespoon or two of flour if necessary (so dough is not sticky).

Turn onto wooden board and knead about 10 times. Cut or shape into 6 to 8 diamonds or triangles. Place on greased baking sheet and bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. Fabulous, Lady Estelle! These remind me of my youngest son. When he was at home, he was forever making scones!

    I believe I'll foreward this over to him as i just know he'll enjoy whipping up a batch!

  2. Scones are such a delightful part of taking tea. Yours look delicious - thanks for the recipe.
