my sister-in-law introduced me to these wonderful dreamsicle scones.
would you be so good as to make these as soon as you possibly can?
i think you'll go for the tang of citrus blended with rich butter. mm. magic.
they were a smash at my house. grant even took one in his lunch today. hooray.
he says they remind him of krispy kreme doughnuts.
i can't say that's what i was thinking, but thought i'd mention it,
just in case that would have you sprinting to your kitchen to get started.
heidi, thanks so much for setting me straight on my scones.
these are far and away the best i've ever put in my mouth.
orange scones from heidi
1/4 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. buttermilk
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 orange
2 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 T. cold butter, cut into small pieces
glaze
1 c. powdered sugar
zest of one orange
juice of half an orange
1. in a small bowl, whisk together cream, buttermilk, egg, vanilla, and the zest and juice of 1 orange. set aside.
2. sift together dry ingredients. cut in butter cubes until mixture looks crumby and butter is worked in. add in the liquid mixture and combine just until moist. don't overmix.
3. using a large spoon, divide dough up into 12 large egg-shaped balls, dropping them as you form them onto a lined baking sheet.
4. bake in a 375 degree oven for 15-18 min. while scones are cooling, make the glaze (you want it nice and thick). spoon glaze over warm scones.
