Orange Marmalade Scones
1/2 cup shortening
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons grated orange peel
1/3 cup orange juice
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Sift dry ingredients; mix in orange peel. Cut in shortening; add egg and orange
juice. Stir well. Knead on lightly floured board 6 times. Roll into an 8-inch
square 1/2 inch thick. Cut square into quarters, each quarter into half
diagonally, then each triangle in half to yield 16 scones of equal size. Place
on baking sheet, indent centers and fill each with 1/2 teaspoon orange
marmalade. Bake for 10 minutes.
Serve hot with butter and marmalade.
