Lemon, Basil, & Cracked Black Pepper Scones:

  • 3 ⅔ cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • Zest of 2 lemons

Preheat oven to 400°.  Mix lightly above ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Form a well in the center and add in:

  • 2 ¼ cup heavy cream

Gently fold all ingredients.  Mixture should not be “smooth” (it should be a little chunky).  Next, drop medium size spoon full’s of dough onto the greased cookie sheets.  Place in preheated oven and bake 8-12 minutes until scones have risen and have hints of a golden color.

Serve and Enjoy!
