Orange Almond Scones

Orange Almond Scones created by Nif_H

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.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  • Cut in butter until fine granules form.
  • Stir in sugar, almonds and orange peel.
  • Add egg mixture and stir with a fork until a soft dough forms, add a little extra milk if needed.
  • Turn out onto a board and give 5-6 kneads.
  • Divide dough in half and pat into circles on an ungreased cookie sheet; cut each circle into 6-8 wedges, depending what size scone you want.
  • For crisper scones seperate wedges on the sheet.
  • Bake about 25 minutes or until medium brown.

    I usually find scones to be too dry but not these! The have a nice texture to them and don't crumble. I really enjoyed the flavours of the orange and almond. - they go together nicely. I had this with coffee but not because I needed a drink to wash it down! Thanks momaphet! :)

    I made this as written other then making 1/2 of the recipe. The orange flavor is definitely there but very subtle. I loved the almonds and citrus flavors in the scones and wished I had made the whole recipe. Thanks for sharing a keeper momaphet!! Made for Susie's World Tour 2018.
