Triple Citrus Scones

“I love the bright and buttery flavour of these tender scones with glaze that soaks in. Serve them with a yummy jam, or try them as a base for strawberry shortcake.” —Angela LeMoine, Howell, New Jersey

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place flour, 1/4 cup sugar, citrus zest, baking powder and salt in a food processor; pulse until blended. Add cold butter; pulse until butter is the size of peas. Transfer to a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk egg, orange juice and buttermilk until blended; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times. Pat dough into a 6-in. circle. Cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  3. Bake 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth. Remove scones from oven; immediately brush with glaze. Serve warm.
