Bake Delicious Scones in No Time with These Easy Steps:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Leave it aside for now. 

  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and orange zest in a large bowl. Whisk the ingredients together. Grate the cold butter into the dry mixture using a box grater. Use your hands to mix the butter into the flour.

  •  In a separate medium bowl, mix cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour the mixture over the butter and dry ingredients and stir to combine. Work the dough as little as possible. Place it onto a lightly floured surface and create a ball. Flatten it into an 8-9 inch disc and cut it into 6-8 pieces with a sharp knife.

  •  Arrange the pieces on the prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches of space between each one. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until golden brown. If they brown too quickly, cover them with foil to prevent burning. Let the scones cool for 5-10 minutes before drizzling icing over the top.

Plain Orange scones

Follow these easy steps to add a sweet twist to your scones: 

  • While the scones are baking, prepare the orange glaze. Combine 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract, and orange juice until the mixture thickens and becomes smooth. 

  • The glaze should drip slowly off the back of a spoon. Add orange zest to give it an extra zing. 

  • Once the scones are warm, dip them in the glaze to coat the tops completely. Let them stand for 5 minutes before serving for maximum flavor.
