This one rates 10*!!! I made these for breakfast this morning and WOWWEEEEEE! The texture is incredible and the flavor is almost unbearably good! As I sit here nibbling and waiting for the coffee to brew, it is all I can do to contain myself and not scarf the whole thing down! Thanks so much for this recipe, Bev...I have been making scones for years and they have NEVER come out like this :) P.S. Made them by hand instead of food processor, and also used salted butter and skim milk.
These scones were fabulous! They were not dry like a lot of scones tend to be, but they were tender. I made these for Thanksgiving breakfast, and made them the day before serving. They do keep well. I reheated them in the oven for about 10 minutes at low temperature. Thanks very much, Bev, for sharing these wonderful breakfast scones.
Very nice! You have done my family a service by posting this. I always thought scones were somewhat fragile and had to be done by hand, which knocks them off my list - I do all my mixing in the KitchenAid. Then I saw this ... I had the courage to try it in the KitchenAid, and now I know that it can be done (I don't own a food processor). Now, not only can I make this recipe again, as I really like the lemon, I can also try other scones. Thank you, Bev!
LOVE this recipe...served it to a group of really good cooks...they, too, loved it. I added more lemon zest, as well as more lemon juice but otherwise followed the directions. Nice to know you can use the food processor and still get tender scones. Thanks.
Delicious! DO NOT use cake & pastry flour! I did this on my first try, and while still tasty, the scones were so crumbly half the scone fell out of my hand before I could take a bite.<br/>Like some other reviewers, I did not really taste the lemon. Recommend increasing lemon juice and peel to get that flavour poppin'!
This recipe is really good! Scones turn out really delicious and I highly recommend it!
Excellent recipe! Made just as stated and did not have to add extra fluid. They were done after exactly 25 minutes and came out golden brown, smelling heavenly. I love the poppy seeds in the dough (mostly poppy seeds are just sprinkled on top of the baked goods),
No problem to form the dough even if I made it by hand (my food processor was "busy" with other stuff).
All in all, a great recipe which will be made many times.
Thanks for posting.
Very good. Nice lemon-y flavor and I added extra poppy seeds. I had to bake them a little longer, since I used my scone pan and it was very full.
made these for a baby shower and everyone loved them thanks
