ORANGE SCONES WITH BERRIES AND CREAM PRIZE WINNING ORANGE SCONES WITH BERR Preparation
TO PREPARE THE SCONES:
Preheat oven to 425 deg F. Lightly grease baking sheet and set aside.
In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Using a pastry blender cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse cornmeal.
In a another small bowl, combine the egg and 1/2 cup heavy cream and add to the flour mixture. Mix until just blended together.
Turn out the batter onto a lightly floured board and knead for 1 minute. Roll dough into a rectangle approximately 4x8-inches.
Brush the dough with the melted butter. Sprinkle with the sugar and orange zest. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, and seal the long seam by pinching it together lightly with your fingers.
Cut the roll into eight 1-3/4-inch thick slices. Lay slices down sideways on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until scones are golden.
TO PREPARE THE BERRIES AND CREAM:
Slice the strawberries and place in a large pretty bowl with other whole berries, if available. Sprinkle with sugar and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Whip the 1/4 to 1 cup heavy ream and stir in sugar to lightly sweeten.
To serve, heap spoonfuls of berries over each scone and top with freshly whipped cream
