Lemon Glaze (Optional)

  • While scones are cooling on the baking sheet, make the glaze. Whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until a smooth drizzle forms.
  • Drizzle it over the warm scones (after partially cooling) and let cool to harden.


How to make paleo powdered sugar:

  • Add 1/2 cup paleo friendly sugar of choice (maple sugar, coconut sugar or date sugar) to a high-speed blender.
  • Blend on high until it has a powder-like texture, 2-3 minutes.
  • If you’d like it more ‘powder-like’, add 1/2 tablespoon tapioca starch or arrowroot starch to the blender at the beginning. This really helps to get it to be similar to regular powdered sugar.
  • Store left over sugar in a jar for another use.
