A delicious scone made special with an orange glaze.
In a small bowl mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut in cold, cubed butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In small bowl combine 2 tablespoons beaten egg and buttermilk (set aside left over beaten egg for wash)
Turn dough onto a floured surface. Knead gently 6 to 8 times. Knead in a small amount of flour only if needed. Pat into a 6 inch circle. Cut into 4 wedges. Place wedges on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with left-over egg. Sprinkle with sugar.
