Lemon Poppyseed Scones

30 Oct
Made these this morning, and they were really good–mine weren’t
quite this fluffy, and I was asleep for half of the ingredient mixing,
so I’m wondering if we didn’t use enough baking powder, but
they still turned out well. Nice hard exterior & soft interior–yum!
Come on over & try on =).
