A bright start to any morning— buttery scones scented with lemon zest and filled with poppy seeds, all topped with a lemon icing.
Being a baker on a diet is hard. Every night I crave chocolate chip cookies. Every morning I want waffles. I’ve been doing pretty good, though, despite the fact that this week I tested and perfected these lemon poppy seed scones.
Three batches of scones in four days meant extra laps in the pool every morning, but it’s all been worth it.
The third time really is the charm because this last batch was near perfection. These scones are rich and buttery, flaky, and have a hint of lemon and subtle crunch of poppy seeds. The lemon icing ties it all together and I’ve never been fonder of the lemon-poppy seed combination.
I may have to start jogging or lifting weights, or something, because I see a lot more of these scones in my future.
