Dean got the recipe for the scones out of a local paper so I thought I'd share it with you. They were REALLY good...so good that everyone had seconds..and thirds. The lemon is very subtle, not overwhelming at all.
2 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tbls baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbls fresh lemon zest
1 stick unsalted butter (cold)
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 egg white
additional sugar in a shallow dish
Mix flour, salt and baking powder in a dish. Add lemon zest and toss to mix. Cut butter (using a pastry blender or fork) into the flour mixture until it forms fine granules. Add sugar and mix. Add milk and stir until a soft dough forms.
Place on a floured surface a knead 10-12 times and then roll out to a 1" thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter or into triangles.
Brush scones with the egg white and then dip tops into the extra sugar. Place scones on a cookie sheet covered with parchment and bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until a golden brown on top.
