ADD MORE LEMON! I tried to make these as Paleo as possible. I used Splenda instead instead of sugar, and replaced 1/2 cup flour with coconut flour. They are delicious BUT lacking lemon flavor. I threw the lemon skeleton into the food processor and mixed it with some water, then strained and combined with powdered sugar to make lemon icing. That added a little more lemon flavor to the scones. I do live in Vegas and we don't get the best produce, so that could be why 1 lemon wasn't enough. I would use at least 2 lemons next time - maybe even 3. I will say this, though, my kids love these cones. They don't know I made them with Splenda! Haha! And after eating one, I don't feel dragged down like I do with most desserts. I actually feel great!! This recipe is a keeper!
