   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
                         For the scones
   1 2/3           cups  all-purpose flour
   2 1/2            tsp  baking powder
   2        tablespoons  zest of one orange -- (to 3T) reserve about 
1/4 of the zest for the glaze
   3               tbsp  white sugar
                         pinch salt
   3               tbsp  butter
      1/2           cup  milk
      1/2           tsp  vanilla extract -- optional
   1                     egg
   1                cup  raisins
                         For the glaze
      1/2           cup  icing sugar
   1               tbsp  orange juice
                         the reserved orange zest -- from making the scones

Tender English style scones infused with orange flavour and packed 
with raisins before being topped with a sweet but tangy orange glaze.

Prep: 10 min
Cook: 15 min
Total: 25 min
Servings: eighteen 1 1/2" scones or 6 - 8 large trianglar scones

Preheat oven to 375F.

In a food processor add the flour, baking powder, sugar, orange zest 
and salt. Pulse to mix together well. (You can just mix the 
ingredients in a bowl if you prefer the manual method)

Pulse in the butter until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. (or 
just use your fingertips to rub the butter through the dry 
ingredients until the same texture is achieved.)

Whisk together the milk, egg and vanilla. Reserve a few teaspoons of 
the liquid to brush on top of the scones. This helps them brown nicely)

Add the liquid to the dry ingredients along with the raisins and stir 
in quickly with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms. It should be 
a little sticky. Don't over work the dough or your scones will get 
tough and not rise well.

Turn the dough out onto a well floured board or counter top.

Lightly sprinkle the top of the dough with flour and just using your 
hands, form the dough into a round about 3/4" thick.

Using a 1 1/2" biscuit cutter, cut out your scones and place them 
about 2" apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. (Alternatively, for 
larger scones, roll the dough into a 7-8" circle and cut into 6-8 wedges.)

Re-roll the scraps and cut out the rest of the scones. Brush the tops 
of all the scones with the reserved milk and egg liquid.

Pop the scones into the hot oven for about 12 to 15 minutes (15 to 20 
minutes for large scones) or until the tops of the scones are evenly 
browned. Cool on a wire rack. Top with orange glaze.

Simply whisk the ingredients together until smooth. You want a thick 
glaze that can be spread on with a knife or small spatula. Add a 
little more icing sugar if the glaze is too thin.

Review: As usual,wicked recipe! Had to try them right away ... had no 
raisins! But they are awesome with dried cranberries too?? Thanks
