Lemon Poppy Seed Scones
Make brunch or teatime extra special with these tender lemon poppy seed scones covered in fresh strawberry glaze. You'll create the signature shaggy dough by cutting cold butter into a mixture of self-rising flour enlivened with poppy seeds, lemon juice, and lemon zest. The method that follows is easy, though a little messy by necessity, as you'll gather and shape the dough on the counter rather than in the bowl, ensuring a tender texture. While they bake, you can whip up a simple 2-ingredient glaze by adding powdered sugar to mashed fresh strawberries. The hardest part is waiting for the scones to cool before glazing them!
