These Lemon Rosemary Scones are the perfect breakfast/tea treat…or dessert for that matter. The scones are just barely sweet, perfectly tangy with lemon and then…then there’s that hint of piney freshness offered by the rosemary.
If Rosemary were a real person, they would probably have taken out a restraining order on me already. I’d be that gal holding up the poster that reads “Rosemary, you make my life complete!” with a whole bunch of ???? smattered all over the sign.
I’d know exactly where Rosemary lives and would be the president of the ‘We ❤ Rosemary’ fan club. My crush on Rosemary is right up there with my past crushes on Bobby Sherman and Barry Gibb.

So yeah, I have a thing for Rosemary. And one of the wonderful qualities of Rosemary is that it really plays well with others…like…oh…say…lemon! Talk about a combination that is just all ‘freshness’. Which is what I was after with these scones.
While scones are similar to biscuits, they should not be flakey like a biscuit but rather more crumbly. Their ‘on the dry-ish’ side texture makes them the perfect accompaniment with tea or coffee and with a dollop of jam or cream.
In my book, these Lemon Rosemary Scones are perfect as they are light, but crumbly and just slightly sweet…but not too sweet, which can actually be a dangerous thing. I don’t know about you, but I can’t eat too many really sweet things before I start feeling ‘bleh’…but the subtle sweetness of these make eating too many an easy thing.
