Lemon-Poppy Seed Scones

Lemon-Poppy Seed Scones


  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 (or more) cup whole milk

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Position rack in top third of oven. Mix flour, 1 cup sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, lemon peel and salt in processor. Add butter and cut in, using on/off turns, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Whisk egg and lemon juice in medium bowl to blend. Add to flour mixture. Using on/off turns, process until moist clumps form. Add ⅓ cup milk. Using on/off turns, process just until dough comes together, adding more milk if dough seems dry. Using floured hands, gather dough into ball. Flatten into 8-inch round. Cut round into 8 wedges. Transfer scones to large baking sheet; brush with milk. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.

  • Bake until scones are golden brown and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Transfer to rack and cool. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.

Recipe by Ledbetters New Milford CTReviews SectionThis recipe is terrible. I think there must be a typo because it says "3 cups of flour" in the ingredients list and then only says to add 1 in the directions. The dough is so wet, I can't even form the scones even after adding more flour. These are going in the trash before they could even make it into the oven.I make a lot of scones, and specifically wanted a lemon/poppyseed scone. Had to make 2 batches, the first one a disaster, although put the batter in a loaf pan and baked it! Had too much milk, so on 2nd batch cut back some. A great flavor, but even the 2nd batch didn’t rise. Very heavy and during baking spread considerably. Because of the lemon juice, possibly a teaspoon of baking soda would have helped. Usually don’t use a food processor when adding liquid..normally mix by hand. Don’t know if this had anything to do with it or not. Seems like a lot of butter for the amount of flour used.AnonymousSouth Carolina05/27/19
