Orange Scones

Spring is HERE!

Spring Is HERE!

The Flowers are in bloom, the grass is green, and the weather is warmer but not too hot, yes Spring is in the air and what a better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than with scones. I been into making scones lately and been saving alot of scones recipe on my pinterest. There are alot of different kinds of scone out there but I decide to go with a more refreshing taste  in the citrus category for a breakfast or brunch Item. Theses Orange scones are heavenly and delicious, tender and full of Orange flavor from pure freshly squeeze navel oranges and the orange zest, its a good wake up call in the morning with a side of butter, or sweet cream, even marmalades and jams. I had my orange scone this morning with some homemade lemon and Orange marmalade( Mary if your reading this your home made Lemon and Orange Marmalade was delicious) that I had and it was Orange heaven to me, with my morning cup of Coffee, cause quite honestly I can not function without my morning cup of joe haha.
