Reviews for Lemon Cream Scones
"These were yummy! I liked that fact that you baked them and not fried them. I thought that might affect the texture and not be as good. But I loved the texture. The cinnamon and sugar weren't too sweet to go with a main dish soup. I worried it would be more like a dessert, but it worked well."
