Very easy to make. I doubled the recipe and I used orange cream yogurt and freshly squeezed orange juice from the orange from which I grated the peel. I did have to add a little more OJ than called for as the mixture was too dry without it. I sprinkled coarse sugar on top before baking. I also froze them to have at another time. I will definitely be making these again!

I changed this recipe into something completely different. I wanted to use up a container of strawberry yogurt, so I used that instead. I also added a mashed banana. I did not use orange juice, but I used milk. Then I glazed them with an icing I made with strawberry preserve. My coworkers loved them! Maybe next time I will try orange scones.
