"Found this recipe online and tweaked it a little to make it "more orangey." It's very easy and so good! The scones come out with a wonderful texture."

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with cooking spray.
  2. Mix flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter. Mix in orange zest.
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Whisk orange juice, egg, and vinegar together and pour into the flour mixture. Stir until moistened and sticky.
  4. Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead gently about 10 times. Pat into a 6x8-inch rectangle. Cut rectangle into 4 squares; cut each square diagonally into 8 triangles. Arrange scones on the prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  6. Make the orange glaze while the scones are baking. Mix 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar and orange juice until thick and smooth; glaze should drip slowly off the back of a spoon. Mix in orange zest.
  7. Dunk warm scones in the glaze to fully coat the tops. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you like less orange flavor, add less zest. If you want more orange flavor, add more.

The icing was too runny. I tried adding more sugar but it was still not thickened. The taste is fantastic!
