Nutritional Facts

1 scone equals 234 calories, 14 g fat (8 g saturated fat), 62 mg cholesterol, 208 mg sodium, 24 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. For filling, in a small bowl, combine all ingredients; set aside.
  2. For scones, in a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk cream, egg and orange peel; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.
  3. Divide dough in half. On an ungreased baking sheet, pat each half into a 9-in. circle. On one half of each circle, spread half of the filling to within 1/4 in. of edges. Fold dough over filling; pinch edges to seal.
  4. For topping, beat egg and water; brush over scones. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400° for 13-18 minutes or until golden brown. Cut each into six wedges; serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1 dozen.
