When Life Gives You Lemons.....

OK...maybe life didn't really give us lemons,
we confess, we bought them at the grocery store....

When Life Gives You Lemons...
take pictures of them on your Blue Willow dishes
because they look really quite lovely!

But you really should do something wonderful with those lemons,
after all, they will not always look so pretty on those dishes!
So, You should make these yummy

 Lemon Poppy Seed Scones:

Come on...let's get started!
First preheat that oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
In a large bowl combine:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons poppy seeds

2 large lemons, zested
1 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 tablespoons salt

1 stick cold, unsalted butter,
cut into small pieces
Using a pastry cutter or two knives to
 cut in butter until mixture resembles very coarse meal.


Pour in 1/2 cup heavy cream, then add 1/4 cup lemon juice,
stirring just until dough forms.

 Using a cookie dough scoop, put on a cookie sheet 1"apart.
Bake for about 10 mintues, or until golden.

  Transfer scones to a wire rack and let cool....then,
the best part....

Drizzle some Lemon Glaze over each scone once cooled:
just mix 1 tablespoon(s) fresh lemon juice with 1/2 cup(s) confectioners' sugar 
and stir until smooth. Using a spoon, drizzle glaze over the cooled scones ~ yum!

Thank you Lemons....

Feel free to share your
 lemony goodness anytime!!
