On a recent trip to Florida, I brought bag a bag of mixed citrus to help brighten my plate on my return home to cold (VERY cold!) New England. Since the citrus season falls during the winter, it’s the perfect time to break out your zester and incorporate oranges and grapefruit into your baked goods.

Heck, why not just use the whole fruit? I took our recipe for Scottish Oat Scones and decided to punch them up with a whole Florida grapefruit. First I collected the zest, then peeled the grapefruit and removed the fruit.

I chopped up the fruit (being careful not to lose the juice!), then transferred the fruit and juice to a strainer suspended over a bowl to collect the juice while the fruit drained.

When the batter was ready, I firmly blotted the fruit between thick layers of paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible, then gently mixed it in before shaping the dough into a circle on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Out of the oven, the pink fruit had darkened into a lovely coral-y orange. Once cooled, it was time for the glaze!

Made from powdered sugar combined with the reserved grapefruit juice and zest, the glaze provides the perfect amount of sweet pucker on top of the scones.

Yum! Moist and packed with hearty oats along with bright citrus flavor, these Grapefruit Oatmeal Scones with Citrus Glaze are just the thing start your day on a cold winter morning and remind you of warm summer breezes to come…eventually.
