    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!

      These are wonderful - especially with the lemon rind. I think next time I would try dried cranberries in place of the raisins - I love lemon and cranberries together.

      Wonderful scones!!! I made 1/4 of the recipe, as it was just DH and I eating them, which resulted in two scones/biscuits. I also used fresh lemon juice in place of the water, as I really like a good lemon and am not a huge fan of raisins, so left them out, otherwise made as written. This is so easy and loved that I didn't need to cut in butter/shortening. The dough was so easy to work with, wasn't very sticky. Since the dough was small compared to the full recipe, I used my biscuit cutter to cut it. I made them earlier in the day and then served them as dessert with a scoop of ice cream and fresh sliced strawberries!!! Delicious!!
