Lemon-Almond Cream Scones

This Lemon-Almond Cream Scones, featuring Nielsen-Massey Organic Pure Lemon Extract and Organic Pure Almond Extract, is full of rich delicious flavor.

Ingredients

Scone Dough

  • 2¾ cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⅔ cups heavy cream, plus more for topping
  • 2 teaspoons Nielsen-Massey Organic Pure Almond Extract

Glaze

  • 1 cup  powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste
  • ¾ teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Organic Pure Lemon Extract

Directions

Scone Dough

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400°F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, stir the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together until combined.

Add the cream and the almond extract and stir with a rubber spatula or spoon until the dough just comes together.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead a few times. Divide the dough into two pieces and shape each piece into a large disk, about 6-inches around and 1-inch thick.

Place the two disks of dough on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, cut the disks into quarters, leaving the slices of the disk in place. Bake until light golden brown, about 25 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet completely before glazing.

Glaze

In a small bowl, whisk the powdered sugar, milk, and lemon extract together
until completely smooth. Use immediately, or cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to use.

Let chilled glaze warm up to room temperature and stir before using.

Liberally brush the glaze over the tops of the scones and let stand for about 20 minutes to set before serving.

 

Notes:

To make Citrus Scones: substitute Nielsen-Massey Organic Pure Orange Extract for the Organic Pure Almond Extract in the scone dough.
