Directions:
Heat oven to 400. In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and orange peel; mix well. With pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and eggs; blend well. Stir in dried fruit and white baking
chips until well mixed. On lightly floured surface, knead dough 6-7 times until smooth. Divide dough in half. Pat each half into a 6-inch circle. With floured knife, cut each circle into 4 wedges (usually cut into 6-8 wedges.) Place wedges 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.Bake at 400 for 12 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute.
Meanwhile in small bowl, combine powdered sugar and enough orange juice for desired drizzling consistency; blend until smoth. Drizzle mixture over top and sides of each scone. Cool 5 minutes.
If desired, split each scone and spread with 2 tsp preserves or serve preserves with scones. Serve warm.

I never use the preserves. The scones are very good without them. A version of this recipe won $10,000 in the 1996 Pillsbury Bake-Off. Enjoy
