How To Make lemon cream scones

  • 1
    Preheat your oven to 375. Grease a baking sheet and set aside.
  • 2
    In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and salt. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture looks like crumbs.
  • 3
    Slowly pour the cream into the bowl with the flour/butter mixture. Add the vanilla. Stir everything until just combined.
  • 4
    Roll out dough on a floured surface, fold in half and repeat. Roll out for a third time into a circle about 3/4 to 1 inch thick. Place on baking sheet. Score into 8 wedges.

    OPTIONAL: One of our favorite ways to top scones is by mixing together some lemon juice and/or zest with some sweetened condensed milk and drizzling on top of hot scones. If you don't want to do this, they taste wonderful when served with butter as well.
