MY REVIEW

"Simple to make and a great texture. I did think it needed more lemon flavor. I'm adding more zest and some lemon extract next time to see if that helps."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 17, 2012

"I've tried several scone recipes and this makes a surprisingly light scone. Easy to make and delicious even without the glaze. My new favorite!"
