Orange Zest Scones with chocolate orange glaze

Afternoon tea isn't afternoon tea without scones. A basic glutenous recipe closely matches a baking powder biscuit that is slightly sweet and comes in a variety of flavors. This recipe is thanks to cooking genius' of the authors of  this blog. Check it out and pre-order their new recipe book, Gather. I have an app on my iPhone that has GREAT grain free recipes from The Food Lover Kitchen. This app and web blog are a couple of my "go to" resources for paleo recipes. 
This is my adaptation of the recipe.
