Perfect Lemon Scones

Perfect Lemon Scones

The perfect lemon scone has a slight crunch, a soft plush interior, a pronounced lemon aroma, and a kick-ass tangy lemon glaze!

For lemon scones I recommend using regular lemons. This is one case where I don’t recommend mellow Meyer lemons. Meyer lemons are amazing for some recipes like lemon curd, lemon pudding, or lemon bars. But they have a very thin peel, and aren’t the best for baked goods where I want to utilize lots of lemon oil packed zest for flavor.


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • zest from one lemon, peeled with a serrated vegetable peeler (you want the yellow part, not the bitter white pith.), See my post on How to Make Lemon Sugar for details.
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract


  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • lemon juice
