Reviews forLemon Blueberry Drop Scones
"Fantastic!!! I make these almost every weekend. I do alter the resipe a bit, I omit the baking soda and sometimes the sugar, I do double the lemon zest in both the batter and the glaze. I also use a lemon essential oil that adds so much more flavor, then instead of baking them I use my waffle iron."
"I made these this morning and they were gone in a matter of minutes. Very easy to make. Good flavor although I did add a little bit of lemon juice to the batter!"
"These are the best!! I add a little more sugar to the batter as I like them just a tad sweeter. I get complements every time I make them."
"These are really good. I have never had nor made scones before but these are delicious and I'm not a fan a blueberries. I do agree with other reviewers that they need more lemon flavor. Next time I will add lemon juice in the mix and double the zest....Also double the glaze.I just made these again because I had leftover blueberries, but after I mixed the first 6 ingredients I realized I had no lemon yogurt so I used sour cream instead, still delicious! I also added more lemon zest and more lemon juice to enhance the flavor. I say this second batch is better but I liked the texture more of the first batch, but my mom likes the texture of the second batch so either way you can't really go wrong!"
"These are really good. For those of you who want more of a lemon taste. I fresh squeezed a whole lemon after zesting it. Used enough juice for the glaze and then dumped the rest in the batter. I also did the same with the zest. I think it was close to double the amount of zest and a couple of tablespoons of juice. Very lemony and very good :)"
"Will not make again!"
"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."
"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!"
"These are absolutely delicious! easy too, since they are really "drop" biscuits, not like traditional scones that have to be shaped into a circle. Definitely a favorite!"
