Lemon Scones

These are a nice change from the regular scones…nice a lemony but still great with jams and jellys.


Lemon Scones

2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 large lemon, zest and juiced (will need about 1/2 cup juice)
6 tbsp cold butter
3 tbsp agave syrup

Preheat oven to 400°F . Place flour through salt into a mixing bowl. Zest lemon into mixture and cut the butter slowly in. You can use a pastry cutter to cut in butter or a mixer works fine as well. Mix together the lemon juice and agave syrup and slowly add wet mixture to dry mixture. If your lemon isn’t juicy enough, fill in with water or another type of citrus juice. Mix until the batter comes together. Turn out onto a floured surface and use a biscuit cutter to cut the scones into small rounds. Bake at 400°F for 15 minutes or until golden.
