  • Preheat oven to 450°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Scones: Combine, in a large bowl, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add lemon zest. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Combine, in a medium bowl, milk and eggs. Add to flour mixture. Gather together into a ball and knead everything gently together. Do not over mix.
  • Pat, on a lightly floured surface, dough out until it is approximately ¾” (2 cm) thick. Cut into 2” (5 cm) rounds. Gather up scraps and repeat with remaining dough.
  • Place on prepared baking sheet. Press centres down gently with a tablespoon to make a depressed area to hold the jam. Spoon 1 tbsp (15 ml) jam into centres.
  • Bake in preheated oven, 16 minutes, until lightly golden.
  • Glaze: Combine, in a small bowl, icing sugar and lemon juice. Drizzle over scones when they come out of the oven and then again 10 minutes later.
