Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
2 Tablespoon(T)  non fat milk
1 Cup(c)  buttermilk
1 Tablespoon(T)  vegetable oil
2 Tablespoon(T)  unsalted butter, cold
2 Teaspoon(t)  orange zest, minced
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  salt
1 Teaspoon(t)  baking soda
2 Teaspoon(t)  baking powder
2 1/4 Cup(c)  unbleached, all purpose white flour
1/2 Cup(c)  sugar, divided


Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray.  Set aside 1 teaspoon of the sugar, then sift the rest with the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir in the zest until all is well mixed.  Cut the butter into tiny pieces and add it to the dry ingredients.  Blend it with your fingertips so that it forms tiny balls with the flour.  Pour in the oil and buttermilk and stir with a stiff spatula until a ball of sticky dough forms.  Put the dough onto a floured flat surface.  Knead quickly into a lumpy ball.  Turn over in the flour once or twice to keep it from sticking to you or the surface.  Flatten into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle.  Use a drinking glass or other circle cutter about 3 inches in diameter to cut out the scones.  Place them on the baking sheet.  Don't crowd because they will expand.  Quickly and gently combine and flatten the dough scraps to cut again.  Alternatively, the rectangle can be cut into 12 triangles.  Brush the scones with the milk and dust with the reserved sugar.  Bake for 15 minutes, until they begin to turn golden.  Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
