      These scones are wonderful! Just barely sweet, and the lemon zest really shines through. Because the dough is sticky, the scones bake into beautifully craggy mounds with lots of crispy spots all over the top. The inside is soft and light, like a baking powder biscuit. What an excellent recipe -- thanks for posting!!
