Written by Diet Bites

Ingredients for Orange Scone Recipe

3 Cups of White Flour
1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1/2 Cup of REAL Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Finely Grated Orange Peel
Cup of Finely Chopped Pecans
Stick of Margarine
1 Cups of regular or skim Milk
2 Tablespoons of Vinegar
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract or Imitation Vanilla
1 Beaten Egg

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

While oven preheats bring out two mixing bowls. Mix all of the dry ingredients in one bowl. In the other bowl, pour in the milk & vinegar. You can also opt for buttermilk as the milk/vinegar combination is a substitute for fattier buttermilk.

Next, add the remaining wet ingredients, except the 1 beaten egg. This will be used to add luster to the scones as they bake.

Incorporate wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Briefly knead on a lightly floured surface then tap down till they reach a height of about 1 inch.  

Cut into triangles. Re-roll leftover dough & cut into more triangles. Place on a non-greased baking sheet & brush with thy egg mixture. Pop into preheated oven & bake till done, about 10 12 minutes.

Makes 1 dozen for about 225 calories each.

For Lemon Scones simply substitute lemon peel for orange peel and  vanilla for 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice.
