From Pinterest With Love #2

Time for another try at a Pinterest project! This time, I wanted to try out a poppy seed and lemon recipe I had seen a while ago. One, I was craving lemon. Two, it was a great option to try a to-go breakfast option. Plus, scones are delicious with coffee. Everyone knows that.

This Lemon Poppy Seed Scones recipe is from Annie’s Noms and it was pretty easy to make. Delicious too!

There’s something about the flavor combo between lemon and poppy seeds that just goes together perfectly. The added crunch also gives it a nice texture.

The batter comes together pretty well and in just a few steps. First combining all the dry ingredients, including the butter. Instead of my hands though, I used a pastry blender and it worked just fine.

Followed by the wet ingredients. Yes, I did mess up and added the lemon juice in the first step, but I don’t think it messed with the recipe at all.

I used parchment paper on a pizza pan to shape the dough into a disc and then slice and separate the scones.

After baking, took about 12 minutes for me, I unwillingly let them cool. They looked so good I just wanted to have one.

The icing was pretty simple, and I poured it in streaks instead of a glaze that covered the whole pastry. Lemon Poppy Seed Scones  icing

The taste? Pretty good. Personally, I would have loved a stronger lemon taste but that could just be due to the lemon measurements not being exact. Next time, I’ll probably add a bit more lemon zest. Maybe even some on the top?

The texture? Perfect! Exactly what you expect from a cone. A bit dense, a little on the dry side, but soft at the same time.

In conclusion, this was a great recipe and you should try it. Fairly simple and great taste, just add some more lemon if you love a bolder taste. I will definitely be making this one again.
