Icing Edit


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly spray a large baking sheet with vegetable-oil cooking spray
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into flour mixture until particles are the size of small peas; stir in pistachio nuts.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine cream and rose water. Stir in the shredded rose petals. Add the rose mixture to the dry ingredients; stir until a soft dough forms. NOTE: When making scones, work the dough quickly and do not over mix.
  4. Drop dough by the teaspoonful onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake approximately 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. While scones are baking, prepare Icing:
  7. In a bowl, combine powdered sugar, rose water, and red current jelly until smooth. NOTE: If the icing is to thick, add another teaspoon of rose water.
  8. Remove scones from oven to a baking rack to cool slightly, then drizzle the prepared Icing over the scones while still warm.
