Orange Scones - Pinterest Success {22}

 

 

This is the first time I have made scones, but it definitely won't be the last. There was just something about making the dough, that hade me quite intimidated. I think it is because I don't think of myself as a baker and it has been so long since I have made any kind of pie crust or dough that I honestly forgot how easy it comes together.

This recipe is not intimidating. These scones were light, moist and had a delicious orange flavor, from the orange zest. One of these with a cup of tea was the perfect for a summer breakfast - doesn't anything citrus flavored sound so good in the summer? I did not add the orange glaze to help cut the sugar amount, but would consider adding it the next time, ( a light drizzle) because it would add a delicious final touch to these flavorful scones.

The recipe and original pin can be found here.

Happy Tuesday!
