Cartoon Baking: Lemongrab Scones

If Lemongrab was a baked good I feel like he’d be something snobby and tart like a lemon scone. Here is my recipe: 


2 cups  all-purpose flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup shortening

1 cup milk 

4 teaspoons of lemon juice

zest of half a lemon

approx. 1/8 teaspoon white sugar per scone

Makes 8 medium size biscuits, double recipe for more. 

1. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into mixing bowl. 

2. Cut in shortening until mixture has texture of coarse oatmeal.

3. Add milk; stir with fork to make soft dough. Then add lemon zest and lemon juice; gently mix in.   

4. Drop dough about a tablespoon each onto greased baking sheet. 

5. Sprinkle white sugar on top of each scone. 

6. Bake 12-15 minutes at 450 F. 

7. Let cool 5-10 minutes.
