Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup orange sections chopped
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • Icing-
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons orange juice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by greasing it or using parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt orange zest, and cinnamon. Add the butter and cut in with a fork or a pastry cutter until the butter is completely worked into the flour mixture and forms a crumbly mixture.
  • In another bowl combine the egg (slightly beaten), shredded carrots, oranges, and milk. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and by hand combine the two until it forms a ball. Do not overwork the dough.
  • On a lightly floured surface form the dough into a 8 to 9-inch circle, cut into 8 wedges. Place each wedge on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 17 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Cool completely.
  • While the scones are cooling prepare the icing. Add the powdered sugar into a small bowl, gradually add the orange juice until you have the right consistency.
  • Drizzle the icing over the scones and serve.
