Delicately soft and tender lemon scones speckled with poppy seeds and covered in a tangy lemon glaze will send your heart aflutter. Thoroughly delicious with the tart lemon and sweet glaze competing for attention, their bright aroma and perky taste will delight your taste buds.
I love these because they only use one stick of butter rather than the two sticks I see in a lot of scone recipes. The sugar count is low too making the sweet glaze a requirement. Without it they aren’t very sweet at all. And the fact that whole wheat pastry flour can be used in place of all-purpose is another plus: just add an extra tablespoon or two of heavy cream (you can use light) to make up for the dryness.
These charming little scones have plagued my dreams incessantly and demand that I make them again soon, they are so easy to fall in love with!
