    These are a little more involved than some scones, but still quick and delicious. I love them with raspberry jam and whipped cream. Wonderful in the morning or at teatime.

      I got 14 scones. I used plain yogurt. Since I didn't have an orange to have orange peel, I added 1/2 tsp of orange extract. It gave a great taste of orange to the scones. I had sliced almonds and I put everything in the food processor. Thanks Momaphet :) Made for ZWT8 for Diners, Winers and Chives

      These were really good, though the almond and orange flavors are quite subtle. Mine were nice and brown at 20 minutes, but it probably depends on how flat you pat it out, I made mine about 3/4 inch high.

      Outstanding scones, these! I pretty much followed your recipe (made the buttermilk version), although I included a very generous amount of orange zest! Very, very nice, & just as satisfying the next morning, too! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
