      I used this recipe with fresh lomons off my tree. It was excellent, but it is only mildly lemony. I think using a tiny bit of lemon extract could be the key? I also varried it- I made cranberry walnut scones and they were to die for!

      This a a GREAT recipie that can used as a base for sconed other than lemon poppy! I didnt have lemon on hand so I used orange zest and chopped dried cherries! I mixed milk and a little orange juice to brush on top. They were fabulous! Everything came our perfect and this was my first time making scones ever! I adjusted the butter to 1/3 cup b/c I felt there wasnt enough butter but that may b/c of the flour I was using. And, I used pizza cutter to make traditional triangle shaped scones. It could not have been EASIER!
