Double Orange Scones
Here's what You'll need:
2 cups of flour
3 Tab. of sugar
2 1/2 tsp. of baking powder
2 teaspoons of grated orange peel
1/3 cup of butter
1/2 cup of mandarin oranges, drained and chopped
1/4 cup of milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 Tab. of sugar
~Heat oven to 400. Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper (my personal favorite).
~In large bowl, mix flour, 3 Tab. of sugar, baking powder and orange peel. Cut in 1/3 cup of butter, until mixture looks like course crumbs (I used my food processor...makes is faster and works great). Add orange segments, milk and egg; stir with fork just until mixture leaves side of bowls and soft dough forms.
~Place dough on floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. On a cookie sheet, roll or pat dough into 7 inch round. Sprinkle with 1 Tab. of sugar and cut into 8 wedges. Seperate slightly.
~Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown....don't overbake!
Thats' it...so easy but so delicious. I won't even tell you how many I ate:)
