  1. In a bowl, combine milk and lemon juice; let stand for 2 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, orange peel, baking soda, nutmeg, baking powder, cloves and mace; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add walnuts and milk mixture; stir just until moistened.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times. Divide dough in half. Roll each portion into a 7-in. circle; cut each into six wedges. Separate wedges and place 1-in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over warm scones.

Great recipe. Like a few of the other bakers who reviewed this, I added cinnamon instead of mace and substituted half of the flour with whole wheat flour for health benefits. As I'm not a fan ...

Very good and easy to make. Did not have orange for zest and juice so used grapefruit. VERY sweet but still good and deliscious warm! Willkeep basic recipe and try different flavours!
