Clementine Scones


Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated clementine peel
  • 1 large egg, beaten to blend (for glaze)
  • Lightly sweetened whipped cream (optional)

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Mix first 5 ingredients in large bowl. Using fingertips, rub in butter until coarse crumbs form. Combine buttermilk and clementine peel in small bowl. Add to dry ingredients, tossing until moistened.

  • Gather dough into ball and divide in half. Transfer dough to lightly floured work surface. Flatten each half into 3/4-inch-thick rounds. Cut each round into 6 wedges and transfer to prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Brush with egg glaze and sprinkle with raw sugar.

  • Bake scones until tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
