Just in time for Easter, my three-month back-order for Anthropologie’s hedgehog measuring cups at long, long last arrived and I decided the only proper initiation would be to pull out my vintage tea party book and make the lemon scones I’ve been eyeing for a few weeks. So, with a little help from the world’s cutest measuring cups, and Angel Adoree, I threw together (it’s only three ingredients!) some scones worthy of Easter brunch:
Of course, the hedgies aren’t entirely necessary but I am very crestfallen to say that you probably won’t have as much fun leveling your flour as I did.
The original recipe called for chilled lemonade instead of straight lemonade concentrate but I wanted the lemon flavor to be very apparent so I took the plunge and didn’t dilute it at all. It definitely is apparent but the perfect amount for lemon-lovers! Other than that I didn’t do much to change her recipe:

Angel added some food coloring to her sugar before sprinkling and I thought it was a great idea, especially if you had a few different flavors of scones laid out for brunch it would be an easy identifier of what yummy flavor was awaiting your guests.
