Over the last few years I have come to love scones. I think the first few times I had them they were just too dry, a complaint I hear from friends sometimes. When I was offered a choice of a Nielsen-Massey organic extract, I knew I wanted orange pure orange extract because, well, I do live in Florida, home of orange groves. After thinking and tossing around ideas I settled on making white chocolate orange pecan scones.
These scones are really delicious. The orange is not overpowering and they are not too sweet. White chocolate isn’t overly sweet and the glaze is just perfect. My family really enjoyed these scones. So much so, I made a second batch within a week. I took a few to a meeting and they won rave compliments. One friend even said she thought they tasted like they came from a local bakery.
You can certainly use larger sized pecan pieces but I had small bits on hand and decided those would be perfect. They were. Larger pieces will change the texture a bit. My son who is not fond of nuts even loved them. If there is an allergy in your family, they can be omitted.
More recipes made with Nielsen-Massey include my very vanilla French toast bake with butter pecan topping, double chocolate peppermint cookies, and coffee almond fudge.
