I make a variety of scone flavors, the lemon combinations seem to be the most popular. I usually split my dough so that I can have two varieties out of one batch of dough. This recipe uses lemon and white chocolate chips and lemon and blueberry.
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and salt. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
3. Blend sour cream and lemon juice into crumb mixture.
4. Divide dough in half.
5. Stir white chocolate chips into one half and blueberries into the other half.
6. Turn out dough on a floured surface. Pat or roll into an 8" circle about 1/2" thick. Place on baking sheet. With a knife or spatula cut dough into 1/8ths.
7. Whisk egg and paint on top of dough with pastry brush. Sprinkle tops with True Lemon and raw sugar.
8. Allow dough rounds to rest at least 10 minutes.
9. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Move to wire racks to cool.
scoobanat 2y agoYummy recipe!
worldtraveler89 3y agoMade these just tonight with dried cranberries and white chocolate together, so good! Really the perfect texture!
sgrishka 5y agoExcellent recipe! We followed it as written and were quite pleased with the results. The scones were crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, not too sweet and the sour cream added just the right tinge of tang to make them totally scrumptious! We only made the lemon-blueberry combination but the recipe lends itself very easily to modifications and different flavorings. We are looking forward to trying other variations.
Loshebo 5y agoI get great reviews from everyone about these scones. Of course, everyone has their own preferences as far as scones goes....I posted this recipe.
