Best Scones Recipes: Lemon Scones

With a bit of practice, it becomes easy to whip up buttery, melt in your mouth scones in mere minutes. No really!

This recipe for Lemon Scones is simple and delicious. There are no eggs in this one–so if you’ve missed a trip to the grocery store, chance are you can still whip ‘em up.

I think I would add a bit of lemon extract to this fast to fix scones recipe to help heighten the flavor (instead of the Vanilla Extract I threw in). As they are, I can’t stop nibbling! This recipe comes from AllRecipes.
