I never really thought this would happen.. I thought I was a chocolate lover through and through. But I am so in love with citrus flavors.
Maybe it’s because I am becoming more mature.. eekk I’m about to turn 25 next month.
Growing up I remember my mom saying “Maybe you’re not old enough” if we didn’t like certain foods when we were younger. Maybe she’s right, my palate is changing because I am finally “old enough”.
For example, last week I shared our recipe for Out of the Pan Triple Berry Pie. And now I can’t get enough of that pie… I didn’t even like berry pie before that pie came into my life.
I must be going through some quarter century tastebud crisis.
If I start liking nutella or cottage cheese, please advise me to see a doctor, because I might have some underlying condition that is causing me to like icky foods. (Sorry nutella lovers!)
I’ve also developed a keen taste for toasted coconut. If my recipe calls for 1/2 cup toasted coconut, I’ll make 1 cup so I can eat the other half. It is so good.
So there’s a few ways to make scones – there’s the traditional triangle scones that you can make by hand or in a scone pan and there’s the circle scone, which I thought was kind of weird at first because I was so used to the triangle scone, but I think circle scones are faster to make!
Once the dough was prepared, I used a large cookie scoop to scoop up batter, formed it into a ball and then smashed it so it was flatter.
I sprinkled my scones with sanding sugar before putting them in the oven so they have that bakery style sugar on top once baked!
Of course I added a lemon glaze to each scone. Lemon glaze is the best. I weirdly love when the glaze hardens and cracks once you take a bite.
I have made these lemon scones MANY times!
