Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

(Adapted from


3 cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Sugar
3 tablespoons Poppy Seeds
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
2 tablespoon grated lemon rind
10 tablespoons cold Butter, grated or cut into small pieces
1 large Egg
2 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice
1/3 cup Milk ( I use skim)
1 tablespoon Sugar

Making Lemon Poppyseed Scones Hip2SaveDirections: Mix flour, 1/2 cup sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, and lemon peel in a food processor. Cut in butter using brief on/off turns. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and lemon juice. Add to flour mixture using brief on/off turns until moist clumps form. Add 1/3 cup milk and process again briefly using on/off turns until dough forms. If you have a scone pan like mine, press mixture evenly into the greased pan. If not, just flour your hands and create a dough ball on cutting board. Flatten to about 8 inches round, and cut into 8 wedges. Transfer wedges to a baking sheet and brush with milk. Sprinkle with an extra tablespoon of sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes, until scones are golden. Let cool and serve. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container.
Yummy Lemon Poppyseed Scones Hip2SaveNote: I decreased sugar by half from original recipe because I like less sweet scones so use your judgment. Also, these scones can most certainly be made by hand or by using a stand mixture if you don’t have a food processor. The key is to not overwork the dough to keep them fluffy.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
