This past Saturday, I got up early (along with Carter) and made these yummy orange sonces. I've made them before but only once. They are really good if you like scones, which I do...obviously! I can't say they are as good as Starbucks but they're definitely cheaper :)
Here is the recipe:
Scones: 2 cups all purpose flour 3 tablespoons sugar 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 2 teaspoons grated orange peel 1/3 cup butter 1/2 cup mandarin orange segments chopped and drained 1/4 cup milk 1 egg slightly beaten 1 tablespoon sugar
1-Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. 2-In large bowl, mix flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and orange peel. Cut in the 1/3 cup butter, using pastry blender or fork, until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Add orange segments, milk, and egg; stir with fork until mixture leaves side of bowl and soft dough forms. 3-Place dough on floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. On cookie sheet, roll or pat dough into 7-inch round. Sprinkly with 1 tablespoon sugar. Cute into 8 wedges and separate slightly (I used a pizza cutter for this part) 4-Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden rown.
Orange butter: Beat 1/2 cup butter until fluffy and then stir in 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
Scrumptious! There are high altitude directions but I won't include them since most of you leave below sea level!! :)
We met over nine years ago and have been married for seven years. We have traveled all over together, have shared good times and bad, and now spend most of our time chasing our kids around! We believe God chose us for each other and we strive daily to keep him at the center of our marriage.
Our energetic six year old, and firstborn. He's a self procalimed genius. He loves playing with his friends, watching anything on PBS and VeggieTales, building with blocks, practicing his cartoon artist skills. He rules the roost and we couldn't imagine it any other way.
Our three year old daughter, a precious princess with her daddy wrapped around her finger. She is the daughter I always knew I would have long before I ever got married. She is a smiler and talker and lover of food, hugs and kisses, making puzzles, helping mommy in the kitchen, and loves both of her brothers (mostly!) She is a budding ballerina but loves the play in the mud and wrestle with the boys too. She is the most beautiful girl we have ever seen and we look forward to watching her grow and change over the next several months.
Our baby of the family...a walking, talking destructacon. He is hillarious, keeps us on our toes and is the funniest little toddler going on grown man I've ever seen!
