These cute little lemon poppy seed two-bite scones are soft and sweet with a deliciously tart lemon glaze. You won't be able to have just one!

Total Cost: $2.71 recipe / $0.15 serving
Servings: 18 pieces
Ingredients
  • 1 fresh lemon $0.30
  • 1.25 cups all-purpose flour $0.13
  • 1/2 tsp salt $0.02
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, divided $0.15
  • 2 tsp baking powder $0.08
  • 2 tsp poppy seeds $0.20
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream $1.83
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Use a small-holed cheese grater or a zester to remove the zest from the lemon, then squeeze the juice into a separate bowl. You'll need about 1 tsp of zest and 1 Tbsp juice.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, baking powder, poppy seeds, and 1 tsp lemon zest. Make sure these ingredients are well combined.
  3. Stir the cream into the dry ingredients until a shaggy ball of dough forms. The dough will be fairly sticky. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, divide it into three pieces, and shape each piece into a disc (about 3 inches diameter). Cut each disc into six triangles.
  4. Arrange the cut scones on the prepared baking sheet. Bake the scones for about 15 minutes, or until they just begin to barely turn golden brown on top.
  5. While the scones are baking, place the remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a bowl. Stir in about 1 Tbsp lemon juice, or just enough to form a thick glaze.
  6. When the scones have baked, remove them from the oven, let them cool, then drizzle with the prepared lemon glaze.
