Cardamom Orange Scones

Cardamom Orange Scones

Can I call myself a scone queen yet? Can’t stop, won’t stop making these delicious lil treats.

With these Cardamom Orange Scones, I’m bringing you the perfect level of sweetness balanced out with a hint of zest. Seriously, they’re heavenly. Aaaand, in true Kelly Kathleen fashion, they’re made with protein to keep you full! I used Nuzest Probiotic Vanilla Protein (code: thekellykathleen if ya want it), but feel free to use whatever you like best!

Cardamom Orange Scones

Like my other scone recipes, all you have to do is mix all the ingredients (except the butter). Then, cube the butter with a fork until it resembles coarse chunks.

Now, pop the bowl in the freezer, and wait for the oven to preheat to 400 degrees. In the meantime, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and take a breather. Once the oven is ready, place the chilled dough on your baking sheet, and use your hands (it’s easier if you wet them!) to pat the dough into a circle.

Cut the circle into 6 mini triangles, and bake them for 12 minutes. Let the scones cool completely, and dip, drizzle, or dunk your glaze! Finally, let the glaze harden, and enjoy!
