I love the bright and buttery flavor of these tender scones with glaze that soaks in. Serve them with a yummy jam, or try them as a base for strawberry shortcake. —Angela LeMoine, Howell, New Jersey

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place flour, 1/4 cup sugar, citrus zests, baking powder and salt in a food processor; pulse until blended. Add cold butter; pulse until butter is the size of peas. Transfer to a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk egg, orange juice and buttermilk until blended; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times. Pat dough into a 6-in. circle. Cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  3. Bake 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth. Remove scones from oven; immediately brush with glaze. Serve warm.
