Orange zest, white pepper and parmesan scones
I sent these in my kids' lunches today. I was playing with my Garvey's Organic Scone Mix (from Amazon- love it- it's the best for a lazy scone baker). So I was thinking- why not mix cheese and orange peel? So I grated the zest off 2 organic blood oranges, and mixed it with 1/3 of a cup of coarse grated parmesan cheese and 1/2 tsp white pepper. I stirred those ingredients in to the scone mix and baked as directed. The taste was amazing- or that's what we thought.
With the scone I sent a wedge of cheddar cheese, some apple sauce, a Think organic bar, and some celery sticks. I think the cheese and orange peel mix would be good in any bread or biscuit.
