SCONES with MAPLE ORANGE GLAZE



2 cups flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 egg

¾ cup sour cream

½ cup sugar

1 tsp orange zest

¾ cup unsalted butter, cut into squares and frozen

Maple – Orange Glaze


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl lightly beat the egg. Whisk in sour cream. In another bowl, combine sugar and orange zest. Using the back of a spoon, work zest into sugar until well combined; stir into flour mixture. Add butter to flour mixture, using your fingers or a pastry blender, blend in butter until mixture is pebblelike. Stir in sour cream mixture until dough starts to come together and forms a ball. Divide dough in half.

Place one dough portion on a lightly floured surface and press into a 6 inch circle. It should be about ¾ to 1 inch thick. Cut circle into six triangles. Arrange triangles 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with second dough portion.

Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes. Transfer scones to a wire rack. While scones cool, make Maple-Orange glaze. Spoon the glaze over scones. Makes 12 scones.
