Lemon Buttermilk Scones -- Low Carb, Wheat, Grain & Gluten-Free
Happy Friday before Memorial Day! I am thrilled to be doing another guest post for Honeyville today. I can't say enough about how much I love their blanched almond flour. Truthfully, I couldn't create most of the delicious baked goods that I have over these past couple of years without it.
One of my favorite flavors, especially during summertime, is lemon. I love almost anything lemon. It's fresh, tart and just complements almost anything you use it in, whether it be something savory or sweet. One of the things I used to enjoy eating before going grain free was scones. You know, sort of like a ever so lightly sweetened biscuit but more dense and dry? Well, the only thing that I didn't care for was the "dry" part. So, one of the beauties of making something yourself...is that you get to make it exactly how YOU like it...so I did just that!
I created Lemon Buttermilk Scones that are lightly sweet but rich, moist, buttery and that pack a distinct lemony flavor...and they are anything but dry! To add just a touch of added sweetness as well as give these little scones an additional punch of lemon, I made a simple lemon glaze using confectioners' style Swerve, lemon juice, heavy cream and lemon zest. It was the perfect "little something" that lets you taste the fresh lemon flavor as soon as you put it in your mouth! These scones make a delicious treat to enjoy with hot tea or coffee and would be a great recipe for you to make and enjoy over the long Memorial Day Weekend! You can wrap one up and take it with you when you go out for coffee...you don't need to drool over the treats at Starbucks...just take your own with you! I snapped a couple photos for you to see what I'm talking about. Click here to get the recipe --------> Lemon Buttermilk Scones Enjoy!
