Lemon Poppy Seed Ricotta Scones with Strawberry Sauce

Lemon Poppy Seed Ricotta Scones with Strawberry Sauce
Today I have a summery breakfast recipe for you, some light and fluffy lemon and poppy seed ricotta scones with strawberry sauce! These scones could not be easier to make, you simply pulse the dry ingredients with the butter, mix in the wet ingredients, form a dough and bake until perfectly golden brown and good! All said and done these scones take less than 20 minutes to make so you can even make them on busy weekday morning, but weekend brunches are also fantastic! The ricotta cheese helps keep these scones nice and moist and the lemon juice and zest makes the so fresh and bright and summery! To add even more of that summer touch, I like to serve these scones topped with a fresh homemade strawberry sauce!

When do you add the ricotta?

J Wilson said...

The scones look really good. Unfortunately, due to a simple failure to proof read the recipe and directions, some less experienced cooks will find it difficult if not impossible to follow the directions due to errors in the instructions. You have a lot of good recipes, but I have noticed errors fairly often and thought I might bring it to your attention. I would hate to see current readers cancel or potential readers skip your blog because of simple errors that you could so easily correct.
I sincerely wish you the very best!

I've read and re-read this recipe and I can't figure out where to add the ricotta?

Jen: Add the ricotta in step two with the poppy seeds. Enjoy!
