  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 ...

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!

Yummy, I have to make at least 2 sometimes 3 batches, or else they're all gone in an hour. I follow the recipe for the scones as is except that I use whole wheat flour. I still prefer my old rec...

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

These are delicious! I made them for my friends birthday and we could not stop eating them! I followed the directions exactly and they turned out better then expected. The were light, crumbly, a...

Just made these, as always looking for the perfect lemon scone. These are fabulous! The scones' density is perfect -- not too dense, not too airy -- and they were perfectly moist! A hit with a...

I loved the texture and flavor; they rose nicely in the oven and were delicious warm. Easy and fast to make; ready to eat before you know it. I'd like a bit more intensity in the lemon flavor ...

Very dry and crumbly - it was just basically barely held together crumbs. I don't know how 12 TBSP of liquid can hold together 3 1/2 ish cups of dry ingredients, when it says mix until barely m...

I love this recipe! I always double the amount for the scones to match the recipe for the glaze. There is no adjustments needed for this recipe! Although I do like to add blueberries to make the...
