Orange Almond Biscones – marriage between a biscuit and a scone

Jump to recipeJump to recipe card

What happens when you imagine a flaky orange cookie, set about making it and end up with a combination of biscuit and scone ? You name it bis-scone 🤷🏻‍♀️

Nonetheless the end product was extremely delicious! I immediately made notes and decided to share it. It also proves that accidents can sometimes be serendipitous. This time I got lucky and the biscones were gone in a few days. We ate them for breakfast daily ….. several of them too !! 

Started off with regular flour and baking soda combination. Added a handful of slivered almonds. Next for the wet ingredients, started off with some softened butter. Keep in mind I typically use butter only for my very special LAAA LAAA Chocolate chip cookies. Since I was dreaming of a flaky cookie, I indulged and decided to add butter. Then I added my usual sweetener – maple syrup. Now comes the key ingredient which was the whole reason to start on this baking adventure – mango orange puree. I wanted to use this and make an orange cookie. So added in a cup of the paste to the wet ingredients. Then combined the wet and dry, made small balls and baked. It spread out into gorgeous fluffy beauties. Added a sprinkling of orange extract and the whole house smelled very citrusy ….try this in Spring season and keep the windows open … bake this while hearing the birds chirp… enjoy the orange smell wafting through the crisp air. 

Although these biscones were absolutely scrumptious and I will be making more batches soon, I am sure I will hit upon the correct combination for flaky orange cookies and will be posting that very soon!

Meanwhile, do enjoy the lovely and very flavorful biscones 🙂
