Meyer lemons…what a blessed fruit. A cross between a mandarin orange and a lemon, they are a bit sweeter than the regular old pucker inducing lemons and such a lovely colour. The skin is a bit thinner and a bit more yellow, they call to me every winter…eat me!…make me into deliciousness!

*In bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt.
*Add butter pieces, and using fingertips or pastry blender, work butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Leave a few large pieces to create flakiness.

*Turn onto lightly floured work surface and knead briefly, and fold dough in half several times. *Gather into circle. Brush dough with melted butter and sprinkle with rock sugar. Cut into 8 triangles or use round cutter.
