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!

I got up 30 minutes early this morning to whip these up and I'm sure glad I did. Wonderful flavor combinations - love the subtle hint of orange with the cinnamon sugar topping. I made these gluten free using Pamela's baking mix. I did have a bit of trouble with the dough - even after I chopped and drained the oranges, when I added them to the dough, it was a sticky mess - I had quite a bit of dough stuck to my hands LOL. I ended up having to add about 1/4 cup more flour in order to even shape it without it sticking to me...but no worries - they turned out wonderfully and baked up perfectly in 15 minutes in my convection oven. Thanks for posting Hokies - will definitely add these to the baking rotation at home. Made for FALL PHOTO TAG, November 2010!
