If loving lemons is wrong - then I don't want to be right.
I've got a surplus of lemons from my tree this year and I've had the best time trying to decide which recipes will best highlight their delicious flavor. I've done some experimenting with new lemon recipes and also added them to some of my tried and true lemon classics.
I also turned to Pinterest for some inspiring lemon recipes. There are a lot of recipes that CONTAIN lemon but I was looking for recipes that really FEATURED lemon as the star ingredient. I found this recipe for lemon scones on the Martha Stewart website and as much as I like the scone - I have to say that it missed the mark on the lemon flavor. I think the next time that I make it - I'll make some adjustments to really boost the lemon factor.
Bake 40 minutes at 400.
Cut into wedges.
Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice. Add enough cream to make a drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over scones. This step was not in the original recipe but I thought it needed a little sweetness and a little more lemon flavor. (I also think they look prettier with the white drizzle.)
As for my modifications, I would substitute lemon extract for the vanilla next time to try and give it a little more tart flavor.
Forever loving lemon desserts. Hope you do to.
