  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. In a big bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; cut in the butter using a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; stir in lemon zest and blend.
  3. In another bowl, whisk egg, milk, and lemon juice; pour into flour mixture; mix until blended and moistened and a soft dough is formed.

  5. Place on baking sheet; score into 8-12 wedges with the point of a sharp knife.
