Thyme scones with lemon curd

lemoncurdscones

I found these forgotten scones we made with Gaba in December when she was sick. Sharing today because I really crave lemon curd today. I always use my favourite lemon curd recipe. I sometimes change the juice- one time it’s only lemon, other time only orange, then a mix of the two, or maybe even some clementine added. Get creative! Scones are my favourite type of bread when I’m in a hurry, out of yeast and don’t feel like waiting for an hour to grab something to eat. This time it was no different ­čÖé I absolutely love the marriage of thyme in the scones and lemon curd!
