Make these Lemon Scones and serve them with Lemon Curd Glaze! A delicious and very lemony treat!
So before we get to the lemon scones, can we just talk about this turquoise baking sheet for a second? Seriously, LOOK at it. Have you ever seen a more gorgeous pan? I saw it at Winners and had to have it, I mean how could I not?
I envisioned all kinds of baking that I could make on it, and how pretty it would look in pictures…a food blogger is always thinking about food pictures and props, all the dang time. I no longer just see dishes when I’m shopping, I see them as food props, and imagine them in blog and Instagram posts! It’s a sickness I tell you. 😉
I decided to christen this pan with a delicious batch of lemon scones…the yellow with the turquoise?! Oh heck yes. But most importantly these scones are so scrumptious. I love all kinds of scones, strawberry white chocolate, hot cross scones, eggnog scones, pumpkin, vanilla white chocolate…you name it. But the best of them all? These lemon scones. With the lemon curd glaze. You have to make the glaze to go with them, and not just any glaze, but this lemon curd glaze. I tried a couple different variations of glazes for these scones, but none were lemony enough for my liking. I wanted the glaze to taste like a lemon meringue pie filling, so I decided to make a lemon curd glaze. This glaze has less eggs than a traditional curd, giving it a more glossy look. That, and this glaze is thicker, making it perfect for drizzling.
The scones are light and flaky and perfectly lemony, the glaze is tart and full of lemon flavour, making them a match made in heaven! I hope you try them and love em!
