Orange Scones with Citrus Glaze
Serves: 16

Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 3½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 7½ tablespoons unsalted butter
  • zest of 1 large orange
  • 1 teaspoon fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ tablespoon milk
For the glaze
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 2-4 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or fork until it is in pea sized lumps. Mix together 1 cup milk and sour cream in a measuring cup. Pour all at once into the dry ingredients, add the zest and the juice and stir gently until combined. It will be a little lumpy, be careful not to over mix.
  3. With floured hands, form dough into balls 5 - 7 cm across. Place onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and flatten lightly. Whisk together the egg and ¾ tablespoon of milk. Brush the tops of the scones with the egg wash. Let them rest for a few minutes before putting them into the oven.
  4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let them cool completely on a baking rack before glazing.
  5. For the glaze, whisk the icing sugar and orange juice together until smooth. If it looks too thick, add more juice. Too thin, add more sugar until it’s a nice consistency for drizzling. Pour glaze over cooled scones and allow the glaze to set before serving.
