Ingredients

Preparation time:

Baking time:

Directions

Yield:
9 scones

Serving size:
1 scone

Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flours, 1 1/2 packed tablespoons brown sugar, and orange peel. Cut in margarine with a fork until the mixture forms a dry crumbly dough. Stir orange juice and 3/4 cup buttermilk together in a small bowl and slowly add to crumbly dough, mixing with a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms. Fold in chopped pecans. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. With floured hands, divide dough into 9 equal portions. Form each portion of dough into a triangle and place on baking sheet. Mix 1 1/2 tablespoons buttermilk and 1 teaspoon brown sugar in a small mixing bowl. With a pastry brush, brush the tops of the scones with a small amount of the buttermilk mixture. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes until the scones are golden and cooked through. Remove and serve immediately.
