  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • grated zest of 1 orange
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter , cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup milk (may need to add more), plus a little extra for brushing
  • 1 egg yolk , lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Grease a large, heavy baking sheet with cooking spray and set it aside.
  • Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir in the orange zest.
  • Rub the butter into the dry ingredients with your fingers until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg yolk, and vanilla. Start with 1/2 cup milk, add more only if needed
  • Using a wooden spoon, combine all the ingredients just until the dough comes together.
  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough three or four times, then form two equal-sized dough balls.
  • Flatten each ball into a disk about 3/4-inch thick, then cut each dough-ball into 8 wedges. If possible, use a pizza cutter.
  • Put all the pieces on the baking sheet, leaving about 1/4-inch space between them.
  • Brush the tops of each scone with milk.
  • Bake the scones for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Let cool for a few minutes and then transfer the scones to a wire rack.

In the meantime, make the glaze.

  • Combine all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk them until thoroughly combined.
  • When the scones have completely cooled, drizzle each scone generously with the prepared glaze.
