Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

In honor of my love for all things lemon poppy seed and my love for scones, here is a recipe for DELICOUS Lemon Poppy Seed Scones!

Lemon Poppy Seed Scones
Recipe from Eat Real

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 TBSP lemon zest
2 TBSP poppy seeds
1 1/4 cups heavy cream or whipping cream
1 tsp lemon extract

For top:
Egg wash
2 TBSP sugar
1 tsp lemon zest

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, lemon zest, and poppy seeds in a mixing bowl. Mix cream and lemon extract; pour over dry ingredients. Mix just until dough clings together.

Flour hands and fold - don't knead - dough over a few turns until combined.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat or roll into a 1-inch-thick round (about 8 inches in diameter). Cut into 8 or 10 wedges or use a circular biscuit cutter to cut into rounds.
Place scones on baking sheet, spacing them about an inch apart.

Brush scones with egg wash. Mix sugar and lemon zest; sprinkle on top of scones. Bake for about 15 minutes, until tops and bottoms are golden.

These look great Christine. Have you made the lemon poppyseed muffins from Dorie's cookbook yet? I made them before I joined TWD - not sure if the group has made them or not. BUT they are one of my favorite muffins! This scone reminds me of them!

I am going to make a basket of scones and some fresh lemon curd for all of my extended family for Christmas this year- I am going to start trying out all of your scone recipes to decide which one to use- your scones always turn out beautifully!

I've never had a lemon scone, just a muffin and cupcakes :), but this is a tasty idea. I love how the lemon zest looks on the top of the scone!
