Double Orange Scone with Orange Butter


I found this recipe on Christina's blog at Christina Cooks. I had never made a scone before, and to show just how clueless I am, I've spent most of my life thinking that scones were fried bread! However, they're more like a sweet biscuit, and these were DELICIOUS! I made them Easter morning with a side of strawberries, and my little family of 4 ate the entire batch that day. I loved the subtle flavor of orange with the orange flavored butter. Huge shout out to Christina for posting this recipe, go check it out!

Orange overload is a good thing. Can't get enough vitamin C. What a better way to take it in with a double orange scone and a dollop of orange butter on top. Yum!!!

Well, your scone, for being a first, is really perfect! And I am into citrus these days, so I should try these scrumptious looking scones.

I love the use of orange in the scone and the butter, I can see the butter melting on the warm scone and smell the orange scent. It looks wonderful!!
