Directions

1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

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.

4

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.

Yummy Lemon Poppyseed Scones Hip2Save

Note: 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.

    Can I use my Vitamix instead?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure I’m sure you can – use what you prefer or have. – Thanks

  2. bap673

    We love scones at our house. Thank you for the recipe. Is that a Pampered Chef scone pan? I always just roll and cut into wedges but the pan would be much easier. 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      It’s from Cost Plus World Market – thanks I love it 🙂

    I love love love scones. I bought some from aldi once to try and I loved them! But after that week I never saw them again.

    • Shel

      I got really excited when I read the first half of your comment 🙂 I’ve never seen them at mine…but I’ve never looked either! I’ll have to keep an eye out for them. Thanks for mentioning!

    Where do you buy poppy seeds?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Spice isle in the grocery store. Thanks

      • Anonymous

        Okay, thanks!

    • Mia

      I buy them at European stores:-) they are cheaper there

    • Chelsea

      We buy ours at Cost Plus World Market. The ones at a regular grocery store can be really expensive!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        Oh good idea – I forget about their spices!

      • Anonymous

        Thanks, Chelsea!

  5. Shannon

    Any other items we can add instead of lemon and poppy seeds? Would like to use the base with another flavor. Thanks!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure we love cranberry orange, oatmeal raisin, plain vanilla, also chocolate chip scones. Yum –you can basically add nuts, currants or whatever you enjoy!

      The recipe I use for oatmeal raisin is a little different —http://www.quakeroats.com/mobile/recipes/scottish-oat-scones.aspx

    • Heather

      I make scones often. Love them with mini-choco chips…blueberry rocks too.

  6. Kim

    Oh my these look delicious! Can’t wait to make them this weekend! Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Linda

    I looooooooove that pan! What else could you use it for so I can justify going out and buying one!?

  8. Sarah F

    Hi,

    is it ok to use whole wheat flour? Thank you.

  9. Brit Chic

    any way to adapt these to gluten free?

  10. Adina

    Anyone try using oil instead of butter?

  11. melanieg

    I usually cut the sugar im my baked goods recipes by half, especially when fruit is a ingredient, us 1/2 cup of sugar what you personally use? Or is 1/2 cup what this recipe originally called for.
    i would like to try these out but def not a fan of too sweet baked goods.
