These are very easy to make, especially with a KitchenAid. I like to serve these with fresh whipped cream and berries though they taste just as delicious warm with butter.

- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest (2 large oranges)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup whole milk

- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
