    French Tart's Note:

    Delightful light and lemony glazed scones with just a hint of spice! These are even more delicious when split and spread with lemon curd - and maybe a dollop of cream for good measure! These would be wonderful when served for afternoon tea, or make a batch up for a spring picnic. This recipe was on a set of recipe cards that a kind friend sent to me from the States, and I adapted them slightly to my own taste. If you are unable to source mixed spice, I have a recipe for mixed spice on zaar: Mixed Spice - Traditional Old Fashioned English Pudding Spice

    Serves: 8


    Glazed ...

    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 200C/400°F Grease a large, heavy baking sheet.
    2. 2
      Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, mixed spice and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the lemon zest and lightly mix with your hands.
    3. 3
      Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
    4. 4
      Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the cream and the beaten egg; mix with a knife; then using a wooden spoon, combine all the ingredients together, just until the dough holds together.
    5. 5
      Scrape the dough onto a floured surface and using floured hands, knead it gently three or four times to form a ball. Flatten the ball into a disk about 1 inch thick, then using a pastry (biscuit or cookie) cutter, cut out 8 rounds, for 8 scones. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between them. Brush the tops lightly with extra cream.
    6. 6
      Bake the scones in the centre of the oven until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Allow them to cool on the sheet for a few minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack.
    7. 7
      While the scones continue to cool, make the glaze. Combine all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk them until the mixture is smooth. If necessary, you can thin the glaze with more lemon juice, stirring in a 1/2 teaspoon at a time. When the scones have cooled for another 5 to 10 minutes, drizzle each one generously with the lemon glaze.
    8. 8
      Serve them with butter, cream or lemon curd for a tea-time treat!

      These are wonderful! I've made them twice and I added them to our family menu, because everyone loved them and keep asking me for more. I used the mixed spice and added some raisins and fresh cranberries to make them fruitier. Thanks for excellent recipe!

      These are just lovely. Very tender texture and great flavor. I added a splash of limoncello to the glaze, which was quite nice. I also used a heavy hand with the mixed spices - probably used closer to a teaspoon. Thanks for posting!
