Orange Scones

You’ll need to wash and grate the whole peel off of an orange or minneola.  You want the bright outer peel, not the white rind

  • 1 1/3 C flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 6 Tbsp orange juice (3 oz.)
  • 1.5 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/5 tsp orange rind

Stir together the flour, soda, powder, salt, and sugar.  Soften the butter in the microwave, then cut it in to the mix.  Add rind.  Make a well in the mix, and pour in the Orange Juice and Lemon Juice.  Mix well, then turn onto the floured counter and knead.  Roll out, cut into triangles, then bake at 425° for 10 minutes or until they begin to brown.

Icing:

  • 1 Tbsp Orange Juice
  • 1/3 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp orange rind (or everything left from above)
  • Powdered sugar (at least a cup)

Warm the butter and O.J. until the butter melts.  Mix in rind, then mix in powdered sugar for desired consistency.  Put the scones on paper towels and drizzle on top, the icing may run a bit as it dries.
