Share Recipe







Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

For the scones, combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Cut in butter with a pastry blender until pea-sized.

Add zest and thyme; toss to combine. Stir in 2/3 cup cream just until combined.

Transfer dough to a work surface; shape into an 8-inch round with lightly floured hands. Cut dough into 8 wedges; transfer to prepared baking sheet, spaced at least 1-inch apart. Lightly brush tops of scones with remaining 2 Tbsp. cream; sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake scones until golden and set, 20–25 minutes.

For the glaze, whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice; drizzle liberally over warm scones.
