Lemon Scones

Lemons and summer - don't you just love it? I made lemon scones using fresh lemons this morning and can I just say that they were awesome!
Scone Ingredients:
1 2/3 c unbleached, all-purpose flour
1/4 c brown sugar
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 c heavy whipping cream
1/4 c lemon juice (I used a whole lemon)
1 tsp lemon flavoring (optional but I wanted more lemon flavor)
1 tsp lemon zest
I mixed all of the ingredients together in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. When I couldn't mix any more (because my arm got tired) I used my hands. I lightly floured my counter and placed the dough on the counter. Knead about 10 times, and pat the dough into an 8 inch circle. I used a pizza cutter and cut the dough into 8 wedges. I placed them on a parchment lined 11x15 baking sheet. Bake in a 350F preheated oven for about 14-17 minutes. Let the scones cool slightly on a baking cooling rack, then drizzle or frost them using the lemon glaze below.
Lemon Glaze Ingredients:
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 T softened butter
2 tsp lemon juice
1 T heavy whipping cream ( you might need a little more if you want a thin, glaze consistency)
Mix together then drizzle or use a knife to spread over your warm scones. Enjoy!
Love and peace,
