lemon ricotta scoonkies

The recipe calls them cookies, but I found the texture to almost be more scone-like. So I've decided to rename them as a cookie-scone hybrid: scoonkies. However, these are so much easier to make than scones. I attempted to make scones from scratch once. That'll probably never happen again, especially since this is such a versatile recipe. I could easily replace the lemon flavor and zest with an orange, and add cranberries to the mix for an orange cranberry flavor.

They make for a light and delicious treat to enjoy with a hot cup of tea. The lemon zest adds a special touch on top, and the glaze is really easy to prepare, which makes this recipe an all-around winner.
Yes, this is yet another recipe from Budget Bytes (in case you couldn't tell, I'm a huge fan).

Perfect for a study snack or an on-the-go breakfast for a busy morning! The recipe makes quite a bunch (I got ~24 scoonkies), so these would also be great for any party.
