~Lemon Cream Scones~

I love scones! When I was working full time, I would sometimes walk down to a corner cafe and buy a scone for breakfast.

I hadn't even thought of the possibility of making scones until just recently. Really, they are quite simple to make! And so much cheaper too!



I found a recipe on recipezaar.com for Lemon Cream Scones. The recipe calls for raisins, which I have used. But I've also used dried cherries and Craisins. Also, I juice the lemon I've just zested, and use the juice in place of the water. These scones are so yummy!



I made them yesterday, and in an attempt to make them a little healthier, used half whole wheat flour. They turned out very good - not quite as "pretty" but very tasty!

On my wish list, from Williams-Sonoma:

(wooden lemon reamer)


and

(Microplane Rasp Grater)


Both would make the job of making these scones a whole lot faster! :-)

These look delicious! So moist. Most scones don't look all that moist.

now what I don't get is why American scone recipes are always shone made or cut into triangles...we lived in England 2 years..ate scones all the time from MANY place...they were always round, like cut with a biscuit cutter???.....is this triangle thing something Americans have done to the recipe..I don't know..just thinking out loud here..
anyways...these sound....so so good Tammy...
