I used the basic cream scone recipe found on this blog http://hearthandhospitality.blogspot.com/2010/04/cream-scones.html , added blueberries, orange zest and the surprise ingredient. Ready? Young Living orange essential oil. These are not the health food store variety oils, these are pure, and not just food grade, they are therapeutic grade oils.
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
zest of 1 orange
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold butter
1 cup blueberries
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup whipping cream
2-3 drops Young Living Orange Essential Oil
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 drops Young Living Orange Essential Oil
dash vanilla extract
3-5 tablespoons whipping cream or milk
In a large bowl mix dry ingredients.
Cut in the butter.
Gently stir in blueberries.
Add the wet ingredients and fold together very gently to avoid crushing berries and turning the batter blue.
Pat into a circle about 1/2 inch thick on the prepared pan. Cut into 8 pieces, slightly separating them.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until edges are barely golden.
Allow to rest 5-10 minutes then transfer to serving plate.
In a small bowl, mix all glaze ingredients and whisk until a smooth drizzling consistency add more cream if necessary.
Drizzle in what ever pattern makes you smile.
Enjoy! Orange is a very uplifting and energizing oil!
