These scones are flavorful and smell divine. They have an amazing texture and of course a huge flavor. I love how quickly they come together and they never last long! They are great for breakfast, brunch and snacks!
Back in March I got to attend an amazing blog bootcamp at Walt Disney World. I hadn’t been to Walt Disney World in YEARS (10 years), but it’s seriously one of my favorite places ever. I went BY MYSELF and squeezed in as much as I could!
The first afternoon a bunch of us bloggers meet up at Epcot and enjoyed walking around the Garden Festival! It was of course lovely, but the BEST part was the pop up restaurants in each land! I picked my favorites and have been trying to recreate them, copy cat recipes!

First up Lemon Scones from England! These scones were SO good (and OH MY WORD the smell was AMAZING, we could smell them from Canada!) I actually went back and got another batch that night AND 2 days later I got yet ANOTHER batch!
The scones by themselves are nice, but with the Berry Coulis and Creme Fraiche??? SERIOUSLY GLORIOUS! OR these are AMAZING with a lemon sugar glaze. It’s nice and sweet and extra lemon-y, Mmmm.
These scones are SUPER easy to make! After I used my zester on my lemons I also chopped them up REALLY finely, I didn’t want any long strings of lemon zest in my scones. Or instead of a zester you can use a fine grater.
I wasn’t sure what my kids would thing, as they are used to my chocolate chip scones, but they loved them too! They didn’t care for them plain, like I do, and they weren’t sure about the creme fraiche, but they loved the coulis and the glazed versions!
- 4 1/2 C all-purpose flour
- 2/3 C granulated sugar
- 2 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- Finely grated zest of 2 lemons
- 6 Tbsp cold butter cut into 1/4-inch pieces
- 1 1/2 C heavy whipping cream
- 1 egg yolk beaten slightly
- 10 Tbsp freshly squeeze lemon juice
- Heat the oven to 400°.
- Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl.
- Add the lemon zest and mix again.
- Using pastry whips or a pastry blender cut the butter into the mixture until it's become fine crumbs.
- Pour in the cream, the yolk, and the lemon juice and blend it together until the dough holds together.
- Scrape the dough onto a flour-dusted surface and then, using floured hands, knead it gently three or four times.
- Create 4 equal sized balls
- Flatten the balls into a disk about 3/4-inch thick, then cut it as you would a pie into 6 wedges.
- place on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat mats at least an inch apart -
- Bake the scones in the center of the oven until golden brown, about 16 to 18 minutes. Serve with Berry Coulis and Creme Fraiche

I love anything lemon can’t wait to try these!
Agreed, Lemon is one of my top flavors, I love pretty much EVERYTHING in lemon!
The lemon scone recipe,is it 2tbl or 2tsp baking powder?
Want to try them they sound very good.
Thank you Dean
Unless I missed it, you didn’t give any directions for baking. i was all ready to put them in the oven, and wondered if I should use a cookie sheet, or baking stone. Also needed directions for spacing, or cooling. I did look up another scone recipe and followed instructions to use lightly floured parchment paper on a cookie sheet, placing about an inch apart. Guess cooling was a no brainer; they’re cooling now. This recipe will certainly take more than 36 minutes because my oven definitely will not handle that many scones at one time! Hope they’re as good as yours look like they were!
yes bake on a cookie sheet, I use parchment paper or silpat mats so they don’t stick. I added an instruction for that, thank you.
Do you have a recipe for the lemon glaze?
follow the vanilla glaze recipe in this post https://ashleemarie.com/homemade-donuts/ and add some lemon zest, lemon juice or lemon extract
I’m looking for a scone with a nice “lemony” taste. With 10 T of lemon juice, do these fit the bill?
well I think so obviously! but you can also use some lemon emulsion to make the flavor even stronger, AND i’ve thought about crushing some lemon heads to mix in as well next time… I ADORE strong lemon flavor!
How many lemon heads would you add
Hmmmm I don’t know, I’d probably crush a small handful and see what I thought, start with like 1/2 C crushed?
I adore Devonshire cream, is this the same/similar to the creme you are serving?
no it’s different BUT I’m sure it would be AMAZING on these scones! https://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/CremeFraiche2.htm
