"A different twist on scones with a lemon flavor. Good with any topping or just plain."

1 1/4 cups
whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/4 cups
grated lemon zest
I bought some of these in our grocery store bakery and wanted to make them myself. I used smaller (approx 5 in. diameter by 1 in. thick) pieces of the dough cut into pie wedges for nice bite-sized pieces. There was way too much baking powder in this recipe, making it taste 'salty' and not enough sugar or lemon flavor (and I followed the recipe exactly). I will probably try this recipe again, but with more lemon zest and sugar; less baking powder. Consistency was good and it was relatively easy to make and has some healthy ingredients too.
Delicious with a bit of apricot jam and cold class of milk! I followed other raters' suggestions and added more lemon zest (full lemon's worth) and less baking soda (3 teaspoons only) and it was just right.
Yum! My family flipped over these. Easy to make and simply delicious!
Mmmm. These were delicious! I put in a tad bit more lemon zest, and added about a third teaspoon of butter flavoring. From now on I'll add about 1/2 T more lemon zest.
These were good....even though I changed it just a wee bit.
I didn't have oat flour, but had 1 1/2 cups Kamut flour to use up and added 1/2 cup of spelt flour to make 2 cups.
I also used soya and added vinegar to 'make' buttermilk. I then added 1/2 tsp. of lemon extract for more lemon flavour and more poppyseeds, just cus' I can never get ewnough!
Lastly I sprinkled a little raw sugar on top before going into the oven. I needed to cook these for closer to 17 minutes.
