Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

Well, my daughter was at it again...in the kitchen I mean. And she came up with this wicked lemon poppy seed scone. Keep in mind that we borrowed the Base Recipe from Wing it Vegan.

Not that we have made them to death, Savanah wanted to step it up a bit and here is what she came up with. Yummo, I swear!

1&3/4 cups of whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup sugar(Savanah bumped this up a wee bit, maybe 1/3, but not 100% sure)
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
6 T butter(we do not veganize this dish)
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 t poppy seeds
1T lemon juice
1t lemon zest
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In a large bowl, combine, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and poppy seed. Break up the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly.

Add the juice, lemon zest and lemon juice and blend everything with a spoon just until a dough forms. Make a ball with the dough. Pat the dough down to make a 1/2 thick circle and cut the dough into triangles(we are still working on this shape)

Brush a cookie sheet with some olive oil. Transfer the scones to cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven on 350 degrees for 15 minutes. NO PEEKING! (That is an order from Savanah)

I am in love. OK, what food am I not in love with. These are bar none, some of the best sweets she has turned out. I am someone who does not like my dessert/sweet to be sickening sweet. I should not run for a glass of something to wash the sugar taste out of my mouth. Well these scone are brilliant I say. Thanks to Wing it Vegan for he lovely base recipe to work from.
