Preheat oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat (parchment paper is fine too). Set aside.
In the bowl of a food processor add flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, salt. Pulse for 3 seconds just to combine the ingredients. Add the butter. Do 3-1 second pulses. You still want to have chunks of butter. So don't over do it. Alternatively, you can use a pastry blender to cut in the butter if you don't want to use a food processor. (I just like that it's fast and easy!) Empty the flour mixture into a big bowl.
Add the eggs, yogurt, vanilla, almond extract, and lemon zest to the flour mixture. Stir to combine everything. (I like to use a fork at the beginning and then resort to my hands, it's easier). The dough will be slightly sticky, but not much.
On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into a circle that's 1 inch in height. Using a knife, cut 8 wedges. Place the wedges on the baking sheet.
Using a pastry brush, gently brush each scone with the melted butter.
Bake for 18-21 minutes or until lightly golden brown along the edges.
While they are baking, make the glaze. Combine all of the glaze ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix to combine.
Remove scones from the oven and let cool for 3 minutes on the pan, and then move to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Drizzle the glaze overtop each scone. *
Let glaze set. Enjoy! Store in an airtight container for 3 days.
*I like to glaze things while warm, it lets the glaze seep in a little and tastes delicious!Recipe adapted from Life Made Simple
