Delicious! The lemon and the fresh cranberries made this scone such a great treat! Loved the combination. Skipped the topping as it was great as it without it. Would make them smaller in the future as they were huge scones. I make a lot of scones, this is a keeper recipe!

How can I cut the amount of carbs. This recipe which sounds so good has 71 carbs, which is more than I'm allowed for a meal. (2-3 carbs for breakfast, 4 carbs each for lunch and dinner. Love scones but can't have them very often.

These are very delicious and light although a bit messy to make. One circle is too big, next time I'll make two. if you use a pizza cutter to make the cuts, there is no need to freeze the dough before cutting. For the icing I used fresh lemon juice.

I use craisins and soak them in hot Amaretto for about 1/2 hr. I also add white chocolate chips to this which sends it waaaaay over the top! I don't totally freeze the dough, just enough to harden it slightly. Much easier to cut that way.
