Loved these! Topped them with some some butter icing I had leftover from a previous recipe. Whisked in some OJ and orange zest to loosen the refrigerated icing and spread over the warm scones. A bit like orange cinnamon rolls.

These smelled great when they were in the oven. I think next time I might try adding brown sugar and cinnamon to the zest to make it more of a cinnamon bun type filling. This is a great recipe. Thanks for sharing!

These were a light and refreshing change! They didn't really feel like scones, being rolled and a little lighter, but they were excellent! Next time I'll drizzle with a bit of orange icing. Thanks!
