This recipe was found on pinterest but it’s actually a recipe from Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy her recipe as much as I did! You’ll notice I made A LOT LESS glaze for these and drizzled it on, I did end up dunking some but not the front and back drunk.
What I noticed from the glaze itself though is that you’re probably going to want more juice then that of just one lemon. I’m not a huge fan of glazes when you can taste the powdered sugar, you know? The more lemon juice in my opinion the better!
For that reason…
Personally I think this recipe could be adjusted to whatever you like, if you’re not a fan of lemon add berries or maybe orange? The options are endless! I’m imagining an orange juice like glaze.. mmmmm!

The specific link will take you to her herb and lemon scones. I actually found this recipe on Pinterest through someone else BUT did you know you can’t copy the directions of a recipe legally? The recipe ingredient content you can but as for the directions, that’s the rightful owners.
What I noticed from the recipe I found on Pinterest is that it was labeled “The Pioneer Woman’s…” I went off that recipe and don’t recall finding a link to The Pioneer Woman’s site. I wish I would have because I probably wouldn’t have made these so thick as you’ll see her’s aren’t. I’d be hopefully that it would cut me back on my servings. Although… I’d probably just eat 4 of them instead of 2. I’m going to need to turn ALL MY RECIPE content towards HEALTHIER options because the lack of self control is real.
If I’m going to do this I want to do it right and that is why you’ll find her link above, so go see her gorgeous images and website for the directions. Goals. I pull a lot of what I make from different sources and places including cook books, Pinterest and google searches. Some of it turns out horrible, although I probably share it with you I don’t suggest making it. The stuff that turns out great I’ll obviously share and in return hope you’ll be able to enjoy too. I’ll do my best to credit all sources.
Have a favorite recipe you think I’d like to try? Leave it in the comments and I’ll add it to my blog cook book collection.
I appreciate you. Enjoy!
