MEYER LEMON AND CRANBERRY SCONES ARE YUMMY!

At Christmas Time there were some lovely Meyer Lemons at the grocery store!  Perfect for scones and I saw a recipe I had printed out and saved in one of my many scone folders.  It was from a wonderful blog I frequent which is Smitten Kitchen





I have learned to freeze cranberries when I see them because of all the times I failed to freeze them - I learn most things that way!

Do you have a zester - this is a handy gadget and a must have for scones lovers! Lastly, be sure and chop the cranberries in two so they will be sweeter to the taste!





My husband and I were hungry
 and the smell was heavenly!




We each ate (inhaled) three scones!
