Paradise and Pennant Candied Fruit

Lemon Sourdough Scones

Lemon Sourdough Scones are light and lemony with a hint of tang from the sourdough starter. Candied chopped lemon peel is added to the scone batter and then the tops are brushed with a small amount of milk or cream, sprinkled with sugar and extra candied chopped lemon peel before baking. The result is a tender scone with just the right amount of sweetness, perfect with your morning cup of coffee.
