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. 

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.
