Top Review by Chef Edlear

Very tasty, easy to make, great aroma, what more could you ask? I grew up on scones, and these are close to our family's style. Best warm, but the next day, the orange flavor is more noticeable. Even then, it's a subtle flavor. I increased the butter by 1 tablespoon, and used skim milk. Thanks for this variation on a classic, HokiesLady!
