Glazed Orange Scones

20130107-212911.jpg
3/4 sifted all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 cup (half a stick) butter

the zest (grated peel) of two oranges

Use a pastry blender or knife to cut through these ingredients until particles are about the size of a pea. Beat two eggs separately and save out about 2 tablespoons of the eggs. Beat 1/3 cup cream into the larger portion of eggs, then pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and stir only until blended. Add a quarter cup of dried cranberries if you like. Spread the dough evenly into an round baking pan or fill separate compartments of a muffin tin about half-full. bake in an oven preheated to 450° for about 15 min. If you use the baking pan, which is how I do it, cut the finished product into eight triangles. Drizzle with glaze if you like.

Glaze

2 to 3 tablespoons of very soft butter

1 cup of powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

small pinch of salt

about a quarter cup of milk more or less

This glaze is my own recipe so it is rather haphazard. Mix first four ingredients. Add milk a little at a time until the mixture is just pourable enough to drizzle over the warm scones. If you would rather spread it on with a knife, be sure to stop adding milk when mixture reaches a paste like consistency.

Delicious!
