How to make it

  • In a bowl whisk together the milk, egg, brown sugar, and the vanilla until the mixture is combined well. In another bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, nutmeg, and the orange zest. Blend in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the milk mixture and three fourths of the pine nuts and mix until the mixture forms a sticky dough.
  • Knead the dough gently on a lightly floured surface for a few seconds, pat it into a 3/4 inch thick round, and with a 1-inch fluted cutter cut it into rounds. Place rounds on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper (or simply butter and flour the baking sheet). Brush scones with the egg wash and sprinkle with the granulated sugar. Press remaining pine nuts into scones. Bake in the middle of a preheated 400 degree oven (375 if using convection) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are golden
