Lemon Scones

I made some lemon scones to serve with the strawberries I put up the other day.  Lemon and strawberries go together so well.
Mix 1/4 C. of heavy cream with 1/4 C. of sour cream in a bowl.  Add 1 egg, 1 tsp. of vanilla extract and the zest and juice of 1 lemon.  In the bowl of your food processor, mix 2 C. flour with 1/3 C. sugar, 2 tsp. of baking powder and 1/4 tsp. of salt.  Add 6 tablespoons of cold butter cut into cubes.  Pulse just until the butter is mixed in with the flour mixture.  Stir this into your wet mix and mix just until combined.  The mix will be shaggy.

Scoop the mix onto a parchment covered cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 18 minutes.  The should just begin to brown on the edges.

While they bake, mix 1 C. confectioners sugar with the juice and zest of 1 lemon.  Add additional confectioners sugar until the glaze is very thick.

Let the scones cool for a couple minutes.

Drizzle the glaze over them.

Mmmmmm......!

I usually don't like lemon flavoured desserts, except a handful of them. I think this could be a winner.
I'll try Your recipe next time I'll make scones, I normally only use sour milk or yoghurt. Yiours must be much lighter than the ones I make.

I'll even try to remember to buy confection sugar, somethging I almost never have here at home otherwise. They do look delicious and those strawberries just makes it better :-)

Have a great day!

Yum Yum--my tummy says yes, my waist line says no

Scones with glaze. Oh my goodness do they look good. And strawberries too.
You do know of course, that you are the reason...well your food is the reason, I get up at night and rummage around in the fridge. :) No..no..it's not your fault..it's my own. I am weak, I have NO self control. None. Zilch. Ice Cream and chocolate are my down fall these past two sleepless night..however if I had these.... ARGGGGGG..self control is going again. :)
GRIEF, but these look delicious!
