Copycat Panera Orange Scone Recipe — 26 Comments

    • Hi, Yes you can make these scones in advance. I like to freeze them before they’re baked. Place the triangle shapes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze. Put into freezer safe bags. When ready to bake place the frozen scones on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake.

      • Ya sorry I’m a dummy, just noticed it says “You can make these scones weeks in advance by freezing them!” At the top of the page, duh! Thank you for responding anyway 🙂

  1. This recipe looks great! My family loves the orange scones from Panera too but it can get expensive. Can’t wait to try it. Only I don’t have a food processor. Is there any way to make them without one? Thanks!

    • Sure Adalie! You can use a pastry blender or just a knife and fork. Whatever tool you use to make pie dough you can use to make scone dough.

  2. These turned out beautifully and so delicious!!! Thank you! My oven runs a little hot, so my scones were ready at 12 minutes. Thanks again!

  3. Hello, I made the scones and they were great. The only difference was that my glaze didn’t harden like the one’s from PB. It was more like frosting. Is there a way to make that delicious, crispy, glaze. That was the only discrepancy.

    • Hi Emily, Maybe when making the glaze you added too much sugar. To correct, add more orange juice until the glaze becomes the correct consistency. ♥

    • Hi Frank, I put the glaze on when they were cooled. If you want the scones to adsorb more of the glaze flavor you can add some when they’re hot and a little more when they have cooled down.

  4. These scone’s are wonderful I couldn’t stop getting another and another. You did a great job on this receipe because they taste just like I have gotten at panera store . Thank you

  5. These were amazing! I didn’t want to drag out my food processor so I chilled the butter and cream cheese in the freezer and then grated them on the largest hole of a box grater. Worked perfectly! I shared some with my sister, whose reply was “I died”. Great recipe!
