Glazed Orange Scones!


My favorite scone recipes! The recipe is really simple and super fast(I had the scones done in under 40 minutes!) Nothing like a large cup of coffee and a freshly glazed orange scone still slightly warm from the oven. :) We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Original Recipe Yield 16 scones

For the scone:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • the zest of two large oranges
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 tbs  butter {frozen!}
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1  egg

For the Glaze

  • 2 cup confectioners’ sugar; sifted
  • 1 tbs pure vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tbs freshly squeezed orange juice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine sugar and orange zest; mix with your fingers until the sugar is moistened and zest coated. Add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix until combined.
  3. Grate butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a cheese grater; use your fingers to work in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the sour cream and egg until smooth.
  5. Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. The dough will be sticky first, but as you press, the dough will come together.
  6. Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7-inch circle about 1-inch thick. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on prepared baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes while you make the glaze!
  7. In a medium bowl, prepare the glaze by mixing together the powder sugar, vanilla and orange juice. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over scones and allow the glaze to harden!
  8. Fix a rather large pot of coffee or a delicious americano & Enjoy!! :)
