Ingredients

  • 3-3/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plus 1 to 2 tablespoons fat-free milk, divided

  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract

Nutritional Facts

1 scone equals 165 calories, 6 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 38 mg cholesterol, 410 mg sodium, 25 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 4 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1-1/2 starch, 1 fat.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, 1 cup milk and orange peel; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.
  2. Roll into a 14-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Using a floured pizza cutter, cut widthwise into 2-in. strips, then cut diagonally into 2-in. strips, forming diamond shapes. Place 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks.
  4. For glaze, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, coconut extract and enough remaining milk to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over scones. Serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for self-rising flour, place 5-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1-3/4 teaspoons salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup. Add another 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour to the bowl.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 16, 2011

"The scones turned out nice and buttery tasting overall, but I couldn't taste the orange flavor that much. I may tinker with the flavoring. When the recipe was in Light and Tasty magazine, there were 4 recipe variations, maybe I'll like one of those better."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 28, 2009

"My husband and daughter loved the coconut-glazed orange scones. I will definitely make again. My daughter and my mother and I went to the taste of home cooking show and loved it. I highly recommend attending one of their cooking shows if one is ever in your area."
