Orange zest: To get that great orange flavor use  grated orange zest.

Sugar: Use sugar to get a sweet tasting scone that’s light and fluffy.

Leavening agents: You will need 1 teaspoon baking powder and1/4 teaspoon baking soda to help the scones puff up nicely.

Salt: Enhance the flavors with salt.

Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. (The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together)

Dough will be somewhat firm and sticky, but still manageable.

Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7- to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick.

 Sprinkle with remaining  sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on baking sheet about 1 inch apart.

Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes.

Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.
