Orange Oatmeal Scones with Almond Glaze ~ There was a coffee shop that I used to frequent often on my way into work when I lived in Chicago, many years ago. It was the perfect place to stop along my morning journey,  for it had amazing house-roasted coffee and even better locally made pastries. There really is something lovely about a hot cup of coffee and a baked sweet treat to keep you going on a blistery cold winter’s day –– AND … I mean c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-old. It’s the windy city for a reason and most of us were bundled-up to our teary eyeballs just to get down the street or catch the train in the dark, brisk early hours of the day. One of my favorite things to grab at this particular coffee shop were the fresh scones infused with the perfect combination of flavors, firm outer edges, and a soft buttery middle. Yes, please. These Orange Oatmeal Scones with Almond Glaze can be made ahead of time or even at the start of your day as your coffee starts to percolate and you get your lunches packed. Oatmeal intertwined with sweet, zesty orange goodness topped with a nutty almond glaze is sure to get you going in the right direction — minus the frozen bits of tears on your face.

Instructions
for the scones
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt and whisk together well. Next, add in oatmeal and orange zest and continue to whisk until well combined.
  2. In a medium bowl, lightly whisk egg and add milk and butter. Mix until well combined then pour the mixture into the flour mixture –– using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon –– and mix until just moistened. The batter will be sticky. Place batter onto a floured surface and form into a large 3/4 inch circle. Slice the circle into 8 equal portions. Use a spatula to transfer onto a baking sheet. Spread out evenly and leaving space between the wedges. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Top with almond glaze and serve.
for the almond glaze
  1. Place the powdered sugar into a small bowl. Slowly stir in orange juice one Tablespoon at a time to get the right consistency. Once smooth and creamy but not too runny, drizzle over the scones. While the glaze is still wet sprinkle with almond slivers evenly then serve.
