  • These are nicer than plain scones for a change. I WONDER IF YOU COULD USE LO CAL LEMONADE as an alternative TO CUT DOWN THE SUGAR CONTENT?

  • I’ve been making this for years the mother in law told me about the lemonade scones. It also made a great pizza base but not real healthy so I use bread dough now however my scones are still the old lemonade and cream.
