    | 1. Heat the oven to 200C/400°F Grease a large, heavy baking sheet. | 2. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, mixed spice and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the lemon zest and lightly mix with your hands. | 3. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. | 4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the cream and the beaten egg; mix with a knife; then using a wooden spoon, combine all the ingredients together, just until the dough holds together. | 5. Scrape the dough onto a floured surface and using floured hands, knead it gently three or four times to form a ball. Flatten the ball into a disk about 1 inch thick, then using a pastry (biscuit or cookie) cutter, cut out 8 rounds, for 8 scones. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between them. Brush the tops lightly with extra cream. | 6. Bake the scones in the centre of the oven until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Allow them to cool on the sheet for a few minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack. | 7. While the scones continue to cool, make the glaze. Combine all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk them until the mixture is smooth. If necessary, you can thin the glaze with more lemon juice, stirring in a 1/2 teaspoon at a time. When the scones have cooled for another 5 to 10 minutes, drizzle each one generously with the lemon glaze. | 8. Serve them with butter, cream or lemon curd for a tea-time treat! | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
