Copycat Panera Orange Scones

These delicious scones are almost an exact replica of the Panera Orange Scones! Perfectly zesty, orangey, not too crumbly, and filling!

Cooking isn't my only passion. Have I told you about my love of jewelry before? Art and design have always been a part of my life, and recently I found my passion fulfilled in jewelry design. I like to work making small collections twice a year, give it a look! Catherine Laine Jewelry Who knows, maybe I'm destined to be a food blogger-recipe creator-jewelry maker extraordinaire.
