ORANGE POPPY SEED SCONES (Makes 12)

Ingredients:
1 cup butter
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 tbsp poppy seeds
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda


3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 tsp grated orange peel
1 large egg
2 tbsp orange juice

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly flour heavy large baking sheet. Mix 2 1/2 cups flour, sugar, poppy seeds, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add butter and rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix in 2 teaspoons grated orange peel. Whisk egg and 2 tablespoons orange juice in medium bowl to blend. Add to flour mixture; stir until just blended. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead gently until smooth. Divide dough in half. Pat each half into 3/4-inch-thick round. Cut each round into 6 wedges. Arrange wedges on prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve warm with jam and Double Devon Cream.
