ORANGE SCONES
From the recipe box of travel writer Carole Terwilliger Meyers.
Follow her Travels With Carole blog.

These are usually in the array of goodies featured in the stupendous breakfast buffet at Elk Cove Inn, in the teeny town of Elk located just south of Mendocino.  Since I have a bountifully producing Meyer lemon tree, I’ve also changed them to Lemon Scones with great success. 


cup butter, room temperature
1 cup flour
          Mix in large bowl using a pastry cutter or your hands, until it resembles coarse meal. 

1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup sugar
grated zest of 1 orange
          Add to mix and combine well.

cup orange juice
1 egg, beaten
          Combine.  Drop in 12 equal mounds onto a greased cookie sheet.  Or do as they usually do at the inn and divide into 24 mounds so you “don’t have to make a commitment,”  as inn owner Elaine Bryant enthuses. 

375 degrees, 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.  Cool. 


Glaze
cup confectioner’s powdered sugar
1 Tbl. orange juice
          Mix until smooth.  Spread a dab of glaze on each.  Serve.  Makes 1 (or 2) dozen.
