  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix flour, white sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk milk, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, lemon zest, and vinegar in a small bowl and stir into flour mixture until moistened; turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
  3. Knead dough briefly for 5 or 6 turns. Pat or roll dough out into a 1 inch-thick round. Cut into 10 wedges and arrange on a baking sheet leaving 1 inch between each wedge.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until bottom edges are lightly tan, 11 to 14 minutes. Allow scones to cool for 15 minutes.
  5. While scones are cooling, stir confectioners' sugar, melted butter, 2 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth. Stir water into sugar mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, until mixture is easily drizzled.
  6. Drizzle glaze over warm scones.

If you love lemon, you must try these scones. You will love them. They have the perfect texture and a fabulous lemon flavor. I’m lazy, so I used my food processor to cut the butter into the flour mixture, and then added the liquid mixture through the shoot. Fast and easy, just be sure you don’t over process. This is a keeper.

I made these as directed last night. They came out perfect! Had a hard time finding just lemon scones, then I found this gem. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

These were very good. They turned out very soft, almost cake-like. It isn't precisely what I was expecting but they are tasty!
