Instructions Checklist
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing for 10 to 12 strokes or until dough is nearly smooth. Divide dough in half. Pat or lightly roll each portion into a 6-inch circle. Cut each circle into six wedges.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place wedges 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush wedges with additional cream. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly on baking sheet. Drizzle with Orange Drizzle. Serve warm or at room temperature.

To serve, thaw at room temperature. If desired, preheat oven to 350°F. Place scones on a baking sheet; heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with Orange Drizzle.
