Sugar-Crusted Orange Scones

Again, Pillsbury Best Muffins & Quick Breads has provided another yummy recipe! This morning we tried:

Sugar-Crusted Orange Scones


1 C all-purpose flour
1/4 C sugar
1/4 C quick-cooking rolled oats
1 t. baking powder
2 t. grated orange peel
1/8 t. salt
3 T. butter
1 egg
1/4 C orange juice

1 t. butter, melted
2 t. sugar

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheet. In medium bowl, combine flour, 1/4 C sugar, oats, baking powder, orange peel and salt; mix well. With pastry blender or fork, cut in 3 T. butter until mixture is crumbly. In small bowl, beat egg slightly; beat in orange juice. Add to flour mixture all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. With floured hands, form mixture into 6-inch round on greased cookie sheet. Score top into 4 wedges; do not cut through. Brush with 1 t. melted butter; sprinkle with 2 t. sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-22 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cut into wedges along score lines. Serve warm.

Thanks for the reminder, Angie. I have got a scone recipe - cranberry/orange that the kids have been after me to make (and a few readers to post) and I've got to do it. Orange scones are my fav!
