Lemon Scones

Recipe by Chef Kate
READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  • Place all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, or in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  • Cut butter into dry ingredients until it resembles coarse meal.
  • Stir together ¾ cup cream and vanilla and add to dough.
  • Mix just until dough comes together.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough twice to an inch thick, each time folding in half (this is the secret to a flaky scone).
  • Roll dough to ¾-1 inch thick and cut desired shapes.
  • Place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with remaining cream.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until tops are nicely browned.
