MEYER LEMON AND CRANBERRY SCONES ARE YUMMY!




At Christmas Time there were some lovely Meyer Lemons at the grocery store!  Perfect for scones and I saw a recipe I had printed out and saved in one of my many scone folders.  It was from a wonderful blog I frequent which is Smitten Kitchen





I have learned to freeze cranberries when I see them because of all the times I failed to freeze them - I learn most things that way!

Do you have a zester - this is a handy gadget and a must have for scones lovers! Lastly, be sure and chop the cranberries in two so they will be sweeter to the taste!




My husband and I were hungry and the smell was heavenly!



We each ate (inhaled) three scones!



The tea was compliments of Marilyn Miller of Delights of the Heart  from our Christmas Card Exchange.  It was WINTER SOLSTICE TEA and very yummy!





You will love these scones!  Go print out the recipe!
