Satsuma Orange Scones

*Recipe from Hungry Couple


For Scones:

2 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour

1/2 Cup granulated sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 Stick (8 tbsp) unsalted butter, chilled

3/4 Cup cream

1/2 Cup Satsuma mandarin orange juice

1 tsp Satsuma mandarin orange zest

For Glaze:

1 Cup powdered sugar

2 tbsp milk

1 tsp Satsuma mandarin orange zest

Pinch of salt



Add the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt to a large bowl. Grade in the stick of unsalted butter using a large box grader. Using your fingers, mix the butter in until it's coated in the flour but mixture is still lumpy.

Add in the cream, juice and zest. Mix with a spoon and turn the mixture out onto a lightly floured surface. Work it together with your hands until you have a rectangular piece. Fold it in half, flatten out again, give it a quarter turn and fold over again. Repeat until you've made 4 folds.

Roll it out to a circle that's approximately 1" thick and cut it into 8 pieces. Place the scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer while you pre-heat the oven to 425°F. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, zest and salt until smooth. Drizzle over the cooled scones.
