Lemon Scones Tips
How can you make sure your lemon scones are fluffy?
It’s important to not overwork the dough. The more you handle the dough, the tougher and flatter your scones will be. Also, very cold butter will ensure that when they bake, the butter melts and creates airy pockets within the scones. Sticking the dough in the freezer for a few minutes before baking will ensure the butter is cold.
Can you put a glaze on top of lemon scones?
Nothing is easier or tastier than a simple vanilla glaze
on these scones. If you really want to brighten up the lemon flavor, add a few drops of your favorite lemon extract to the glaze. Want to add a pop of color? Folding in some fresh blueberries
can really complement these lemon scones.
How do you store lemon scones?
If you want to make these ahead, they'll last 1-2 days in an airtight container before they start to dry out. If you store scones in the fridge, they'll last for about 5 days. They can freeze
for up to 3 months in a resealable bag or airtight container. Here's how to store all your baked goods
to keep them fresh.—Ellie Crowley, Taste of Home Culinary Assistant
