While perusing through the cabinets the other day, I happened to unearth an unused baking dish specifically designed for scones. Instantly, my mind started to crank through ideas of different scone recipes I could try. The usual combinations came to mind: lemon poppyseed, blueberry, pumpkin, and cranberry and orange. But, as I started to think about the combinations, I realized I already had all of the ingredients needed for cranberry and orange scones. So, with the help of a recipe from Epicurious, I was set to make Cranberry and Orange Scones!
Step 1: Combine Dry Ingredients;
Add Grated Orange Peel
Step 2: Combine Mixture with Butter Using
Hands Until a Coarse Meal Forms; Use a Fork to Combine Buttermilk to Mixture
Step 3: Roll Dough onto Floured Board;
Knead Four Times and Cut into 8 Pieces
Step 4: Bake at 400 Degrees for 25 Minutes
Step 5: Combine Fresh Orange Juice With
Powdered Sugar for Glaze; Spread onto Scones
I really liked this recipe. However, I only put icing on four of the scones. As a result, I would dare to say that I liked the scones without the icing more than the scones that I did put icing on. Go figure. But, for now, I’ll add this to the “regular” recipe list and look forward to making this again in the future sans icing!
