Orange Poppyseed Scones

Orange Poppyseed Scones

2 1/4 cups Flour
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Poppyseed
1 teaspoon Cream of tartar
3/4 teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Butter
1/4 cup Orange juice
1 large Egg
1 teaspoon Orange peel

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix all dry ingredients together. Cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles cornmeal. Beat the egg slightly into the orange juice; add liquid mixture to dry mix and gently shape dough into a ball. Cut the ball in half, and pat each half out on a floured surface into a circle about 1/2 inch thick, and 8 inches around. Cut into wedges and place on a baking sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
