    Shape dough into ball; place on cookie sheet. With floured fingers, press or roll dough into 8-inch round. Cut into 8 wedges; do not separate.

    Brush dough with 1 to 2 tablespoons buttermilk. In small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon orange peel. Sprinkle over dough.

    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; place on serving tray. Cool 5 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    *To substitute for buttermilk, use 1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice plus milk to make 1/3 cup.
  • tip 2
    Prepare scones up to the point of adding the liquids the night before you bake them; cover and refrigerate. The next morning, stir in the yogurt and buttermilk, shape and bake.
