    swissms's Note:

    These scones have a delicate orange flavor as to not dominate the coconut. If you are looking for a more prominent flavor of orange, add more freshly grated orange zest to the dough and/or be sure to use the orange glaze.

    Units: US | Metric

    Egg Wash

    • 1 egg, beaten with
    • 2 tablespoons water or 2 tablespoons milk


    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
    • zest from 1 orange (freshly grated, about 1 tablespoon)

    Variation (Orange Glaze)


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix 4 cups of flour, ¼ cup sugar, the baking powder, salt and orange zest.
    3. 3
      Add the cold butter and mix at the lowest speed until the butter is the size of peas.
    4. 4
      Combine the eggs and heavy cream and, with the mixer on low speed, slowly pour into the flour and butter mixture. Mix until just blended. The dough will look lumpy.
    5. 5
      Combine the coconut and ¼ cup of flour, add to the dough, and mix on low speed until blended.
    6. 6
      Dump the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead it into a ball. Flour your hands and a rolling pin and roll the dough ¾-inch thick. You should see small bits of butter in the dough. Keep moving the dough on the floured board so it doesn’t stick.
    7. 7
      Flour a 3-inch round plain or fluted cutter and cut circles of dough. Place the scones on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Collect the scraps neatly, roll them out, and cut more circles.
    8. 8
      If Using Egg Wash & Orange Coconut Topping:.
    9. 9
      Brush the tops of the scones with egg wash, sprinkle with orange-coconut topping, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the tops are browned and the insides are fully baked. The scones will be firm to the touch. Allow the scones to cool for 15 minutes.
    10. 10
      If Using Orange Glaze:.
    11. 11
      Bake scones for 15 to 20 minutes, until the tops are browned and the insides are fully baked. The scones will be firm to the touch. Allow the scones to cool for 15 minutes. Combine confectioners' sugar, orange juice and orange zest. Drizzle over tops of scones.
    12. 12
      Serve warm, with butter and honey.

      I was so disappointed in the results of this recipe! The recipe was very involved and time consuming but in the end it tasted like a glorified buttermilk biscuit. Way too bland! I even added orange juice to the mix and could not taste even a hint of orange flavor. I would not recommend them.
