Ingredients

  • 3 C. all-purpose flour – 400 grams
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into pieces – 56 grams
  • 1/3 C. granulated sugar – 70 grams
  • 1 Tbsp. Clabber Girl® Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt*
  • Zest of 2 large lemons
  • 3 Tbsp. Spice Islands® Poppy Seeds + extra for topping
  • 1 1/3 C. heavy cream (more as needed by 1 tablespoon)
  • 2 tsp. Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 C. powdered sugar
  • 12 tsp. lemon juice
  • vanilla paste (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F and place rack in center of oven. Prepare a baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and zest of 2 lemons.
  3. With clean hands rub butter pieces into flour mixture until small crumbles form and ingredients are combined.
  4. Add 3 tablespoons poppy seeds, mix.
  5. Next, add your heavy cream and, beginning with 1 1/3 cup and adding more by 1 tablespoon as needed combine dough with spatula. Add vanilla. Dough should just come together – some dry crumbles will remain.
  6. Turn onto floured surface and form into a large disc, combining all the loose crumbles until fully formed and cohesive.
  7. Divide in 2 and form those into 2 discs about 1″ thick. Cut into 4’s and place on prepared baking sheet, leaving 1.5 inches apart.*
  8. Bake scones for 18-20 minutes until risen, golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before glazing.
  10. Prepare the glaze by mixing 1 cup powdered sugar and 1-2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice. Add more or less sugar/juice to achieve desired consistency. Add a hint of vanilla paste to get extra vanilla flavor and vanilla specks.
  11. Once scones are cool, drizzle glaze on each scone and finally sprinkle additional Spice Islands Poppy Seeds on top.
  12. Scones are best enjoyed the day of baking.

Tips

  • Pro tip – Make scones up to step 7 and freeze flat on baking sheet, then pop into freezer bag. When you’re ready to enjoy fresh scones, remove from freezer bag and bake as directed.
  • If you’d like to swap out orange or grapefruit for lemon – they’d be delicious!
  • You can also add up to 3/4 cup of an add-in such as: chocolate chunks, raisins, cranberries or fresh fruit to this recipe.
