      These are very good scones. I like there size..so many scones are huge but these are just perfect. The orange peel adds a very nice zest.I really like that they are not too sweet. I didn't have currants so I used raisins but they are quite good maybe just slightly different...a little more sweet. Over all a very good tea time treat.

      Delicious scones!! We love the orange zest with the currants! A lovely texture, just sweet enough. Great served with butter and a cup of tea..

      Very nice! I made them as directed except I forgot about the milk and sugar until they had been in the oven 15 minutes or so. A little late! But they were great anyway. I didn't have any oranges, so I used a Tbsp of dried orange peel. I think fresh would be zestier, but this was fine. And I faked the buttermilk by pouring about 3/4 Tbsp vinegar into the measuring cup before pouring in milk. Yummy and not too sweet. I think I'll go have another! Thanks!
