These BB-8 Orange Scones are inspired by the Star Wars droid BB-8. I decided on orange because of the orange coloring on the droid. The large cookie scoop is perfect to make the bottom circle and then a small cookie scoop for his head. I cut those and shaped them to fit on top and not lose the circular shape. I used his orange paint as inspiration for orange flavor.
I used a little glaze to accent his circles and designs. They are not perfect, but they are delicious and I think get the theme across. I think these are a great way to start of the celebration for Star Wars Day… and May the 4th Be With You!
Light citrus flavor scone that reminds us of sugar cookies. Delicious and quick morning option or for afternoon tea.
½ cup milk
1½ tsp white vinegar
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
¼ tsp salt
zest from one orange
½ cup confectioner's sugar
¼ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
Stir together milk and vinegar; set aside.
Stir together butter and ½ cup sugar in a large bowl.
Combine flour and next three ingredients; stir into butter mixture alternating with milk mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture, until dry ingredients are moistened
Add orange zest and stir until well distributed
Using large cookie scoop, scoop one circle of batter onto cookie sheet. Using small cookie scoop, scoop a small circle out, cut about ¾ from bottom and set on top of the large circle of batter to make BB-8's head.
Repeat until all batter is used
Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden.
While scones are cooling, mix the confectioner's sugar and orange juice together. Add more of either until you get a thick consistency that can hold it's shape when put it onto the scone.
When the scones are cool, pipe the glaze onto the scones to resemble the shapes on BB-8.
