UPDATE 6/20/16 Please pardon the wait, but I will be updating this page and adding the scone recipe here as soon as I can. Thank you.
Tea is wonderful, but tea AND scones…heaven! I have been on a mission to find the best recipe for scones. Scouring my cookbooks and the internet for scone recipes to experiment with is one of my joys. I thought I might be on this scone-tracking journey for quite some time. I hardly expected to find the recipe for the be-all-end-all-of scones so quickly, but I did. I have written four posts about it in a previous blog. My plan is to move the Scone Reviews to this blog.
I have to tell you, you will want to check the ingredients list, and make these immediately!
The BEST Scones EVER!
I have one addition to make these even more amazing. (Is that possible?)
I frosted the most recent version with orange icing.
I whipped 4 Tablespoons of soft butter with 1 cup of powdered sugar and added about 2 Tablespoons of orange juice. You may add more orange juice or powdered sugar, depending on the consistency you like. Then, I grated about 1 Tablespoon of orange zest into the icing.
I wanted the icing to infuse the warm scones, so I waited about ten minutes after taking the scones out of the oven, and then frosted them. I also wanted the icing to drizzle down the sides a bit, so I added a touch more orange juice than I first mixed in.
Please, let me know if you make these and what you think! ;^)
P.S. I’ve linked up with Tea Rose Home and the Link Party:
Check it out! There are some amazing people over there! ;^)
