Amazing Lemon Scones
December 13, 2012

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 in the scones and frosting. Either halve the frosting recipe or double the batch of scones! There was more than enough to slather on every bite and we still had leftover frosting. We ran out of scones way too soon. We can't eat a lot of real sugar. Made the scones with splenda and they came out fine. The real sugar frosting was too sweet for us. Next time I'll try a sweetened lemon butter with zest in it instead of frosting; or a lemon-flavored cream cheese frosting. We can use splenda since sugar isn't the main ingredient. All Recipes Cranberry Scones By Anne DeCosta has a great butter recipe that should adapt to lemon zest and splenda. Even though we can't eat the sugar, as is, Angelstar's Amazing Lemon Scones recipe is 5 star. This would be lovely for Christmas breakfast or for a ladies tea. Then by all means make all the frosting and serve the extra "on the side."
