This zesty scone recipe from A Beautiful Mess provides an easy homemade snack to pair with a fresh cup of tea.

This recipe starts with just a single tablespoon of grated oranges and half a cup of freshly squeezed orange juice. Combine this with two cups of flour, six tablespoons of sugar, some butter, milk and one egg. This will make about eight scones that are baked in the oven for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

This zesty scone recipe is perfectly paired with a cup of hot herbal tea. Each scone can be enhanced even more by adding a slight drizzle of sweet icing to top them off. The freshness of orange citrus is a powerful flavor that is perfect for an afternoon snack, or even as an after dinner dessert treat.
