Easiest Ever Orange Scones!
These delicious scones are so easy to make ... I just couldn't believe how good they were! I've made lots of scones, using several recipes ... but this is the one I will stick with. They are great with tea, coffee or a cold glass of milk!
The recipe is simple. Gently mix together 2 cups of self rising flour, 1/4 cup of sugar (I used Splenda), 1/2 cup half and half, 1/2 cup of 7-Up and the zest of an orange. Don't over mix the dough ... and when it comes together ... pat it into a circle on your baking sheet and cut it into wedges. I barely separate the wedges. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes. I like to sprinkle mine with poppy seeds before baking ... and if you want more of an orange flavor, add a little orange extract. You can switch lemon zest and lemon extract for the orange.
