Please join me today for a lovely Cream Tea with some yummy
Lemon Cream Scones! This is one of my favorite scone recipes
and it was so much fun decorating them in shabby colors!
I was just going to serve the Pink Whipped Cream on the side, but decided
to go ahead and slice the scones in half and fill with the cream! I topped
the whipped cream with homemade sprinkles! So pretty!
The scones are so simple to make!
Just let them cool......
Then decorate & serve with pink whipped cream!
Pretty Shabby Colors!
Lemon Cream Scones
2 cups AP flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp poppy seeds
2 tsp lemon peel
1/3 cup cold butter, cut in small pieces
1 cup heavy cream
5 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
8 tbsp milk
pink & teal food coloring
assorted royal icing flowers
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
pink food coloring
Combine first 6 ingredients; cut in butter with a pastry
blender or rub with your hands until crumbly.
Add heavy cream; stirring just until moistened.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until
dough comes together. Roll out to an 8" circle. Cut out
rounds of dough using a small round pastry cutter.
(Scraps can be re-rolled) Bake in 400 degree oven
for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on rack.
Combine confectioners' sugar & milk and stir until smooth.
Divide icing into 2 bowls. Tint one pink and one teal.
Dip tops of scones into desired color, letting excess icing
drip off before sitting on a lined baking sheet. Place one
royal icing flower on top of scone before icing dries.
For Whipped Cream:
Beat heavy cream (whipping cream) with sugar
until firm peaks. Add desired food coloring
You can stack them after the icing dries!
I made my own sprinkles so they would match the colors of my scones.
If you've never made your own sprinkles, it couldn't be easier! Just
place the desired amount of white sprinkles into a zip lock bag, add
a drop of food coloring and shake to combine!!
These were so delicious! Not too sweet!
Hope you enjoyed my Shabby Tea! Come again soon!! xo
