    Bayhill's Note:

    I originally found this recipe on the back of a C & H sugar bag. I like it because it has a light lemon flavor without being overly sweet.

      Really outstanding scones. I also used lemon juice for the water and they had a lovely lemon nip that was a delight. I used Splenda for the sugar and a more heart healthy margarine for the butter. Even with my healt changes theu rose to be fluffy and light with a nice crisp crust. Moist and very flavorful inside. For a summer treat try them on the deck or patio with lemonade instesd of coffee. YUM!

      Other than leaving out the raisins (a DH diet restriction) & the addition of a sml amt of lemon extract to intensify the lemon flavor, your recipe was made as written & enjoyed as dessert for a family brunch Sat morning. Fresh fruit was served w/the scones, but I am not sure anyone noticed the fruit. This has become a new favorite scone recipe for me, so thx for sharing it w/us. :-)
