These homemade Orange Cream Scones are one of my favorite summer recipes! These flaky and tender cream scones are packed with fresh orange flavor and topped with a sweet homemade orange glaze, making them a perfect breakfast, brunch, or dessert for the summer season.
Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and orange zest. Cut in cold butter with a pastry cutter (or using a standing mixer) and mix the dough until the butter is about the size of peas, and the dough resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk egg, sour cream, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. Mix with the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and pat into a 1" thick circle. Cut into 8 triangles. Place scones on parchment lined baking tray, making sure the scones are evenly spaced apart.
