Lemon Scones Recipe with Lemon Icing

What an amazing soft Lemon Scones with Lemon Glaze Recipe! These gorgeous scones are so incredible, the boys and I just couldn’t get enough of them!

If you are familiar making scones recipes, you know that they are so simple! This Lemon Scones recipe is no different.

Unlike most of the scones recipes on little Indiana, this one does use cream instead of milk. I have subbed in a bit of orange peel for the lemon with great result. I’ve already made these lemon scones two times this week alone!

A wonderful recipe! We chose to omit the Raisins. We eat these Lemon Scones plain. They are so incredibly soft!

In a pinch, I have subbed in Orange Peel for Lemon Peel with equally great results.


  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Golden Raisins, Coarsely Chopped (Optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Peel, Finely Grated
  • 1 Cup Whipping Cream
  • 2 - 4 Tablespoons Water


  1. 375* oven.
  2. Combine Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder, and Salt.
  3. Stir in Raisins (if using) and Lemon Peel.
  4. With a fork, stir in Cream and only as much Water as needed to make dough form into a ball.
  5. On a floured surface, knead 5 times, and place on greased or parchment lined cookie sheet.
  6. Pat kneaded dough into 8" circle.
  7. Slice into wedges.
  8. Bake 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove to wire rack to cool.
  10. Serve warm or at room temperature with Lemon Curd or plain (like we eat them).
  11. With a sharp knife, cut halfway through the dough to mark into 12 wedges. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, until golden brown; remove to wire rack to cool.
  12. Cut into wedges while still warm, or cool completely before cutting.
  13. Serve warm or at room temperature with lemon curd.
