Orange Scones with Orange Glaze


  • cooking spray
  • 1.3333333730698 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar, divided
  • 0.5 teaspoon baking soda
  • 0.25 teaspoon baking powder
  • 0.25 teaspoon salt
  • 0.5 stick cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2.5 tablespoons orange zest
  • 6 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1.5 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon milk, or as needed
  • 0.5 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 4 teaspoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with cooking spray.


Mix flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter. Mix in orange zest.


Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Whisk orange juice, egg, and vinegar together and pour into the flour mixture. Stir until moistened and sticky.


Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead gently about 10 times. Pat into a 6x8-inch rectangle. Cut rectangle into 4 squares; cut each square diagonally into 8 triangles. Arrange scones on the prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.


Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.


Make the orange glaze while the scones are baking. Mix 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar and orange juice until thick and smooth; glaze should drip slowly off the back of a spoon. Mix in orange zest.


Dunk warm scones in the glaze to fully coat the tops. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
