Fresh Orange Scones


Ingredients:
Orange Scones

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • zest of one large orange or two medium oranges
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg
Orange Glaze
  • 3 tbs unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tbs freshly squeezed orange juice
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and set oven rack to the middle position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, gently toss flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a separate small bowl, whisk sour cream and egg until completely smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, stir sugar and orange zest together until sugar is moistened and zest is evenly distributed. Pour in flour mixture and toss to combine. Grate frozen butter into mixture. Using your hands, work in the butter until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Gently stir in sour cream mixture until just about combined. Do not over work the dough! Again, very gently press the dough against the sides of the bowl a few times and form a ball. The dough will be sticky at first but will come together as you form it.
