Lemon Cream Scones (Recipe)

Today I'm sharing a recipe for Lemon Cream Scones. Sometimes I love a breakfast pastry with my morning coffee and these Lemon Cream Scones are perfect!


Lemon Cream Scones
 (recipe source unknown--I received it from a former coworker)
2 cups all purpose flour + 1 c. for board/kneading
1/4 cup + 2 tbs sugar
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 chopped dried fruit of your choice (the original recipe calls for apricots but I have used dried cranberries, blueberries, and nothing at all. All yummy.)
1 tbs + 1 tsp grated lemon  zest
1 3/4 c whipping cream
3 tbs butter, melted
Preheat oven to 425 F. Mix flour, 1/4 c sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl. Whisk to break up lumps.
Stir in dried fruit and 1 tbs lemon zest.
Add whipping cream and stir just until a sticky dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead gently until the dough holds together.  
 I found this dough to be way too sticky so I added about a cup of flour in drips and drabs as I was kneading it. I added/kneaded until the dough was almost not sticky.
Press the dough into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle of sorts. Mine was  least 12 inches in length.  Cut the dough into squares and then cut each square on the diagonal to form triangles. I ended up with 16 scones but I made mine kind of large. You decide.
Transfer the scones to a large baking sheet. Combine 2 tbs sugar and 1 tsp lemon zest and stir. Brush scones with the melted butter and sprinkle with the lemon sugar.
Bake about 15 minutes or until golden.
We all really enjoy them and I hope you will too!
