2 cups flour

1/2 cup drained,chopped mandarin oranges

3 TBSP sugar

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup skim milk

1 TBSP sugar

2 tsp grated orange zest

1 egg,beaten or egg substitiue

1/4 cup butter or margarine (I use I can't believe it's not butter light)

1egg white,beaten

1 TBSP sugar


Preheat oven to 400 F.Lightly coat cookie sheet with cooking spray.

In large bowl, combine flour,3 TBSP sugar,baking powder and grated orange zest. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in oranges, milk and egg just until the dough leaves side of the bowl. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly 10 times.

Place on greased cookie sheet and roll or pat into an evenly shaped 8-inch circle.

Cut into 8 wedges with a sharp knife; separate slightly.

This is optional; Brush with beaten egg white, sprinkle with 1 TBSP sugar.

Bake 15-16 minutes or until edges are light brown.Immediately remove from cookie sheet and serve warm.Makes 8 scones
