Makes 12 scones.


• 1 medium orange, peel only
• 2/3 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F.  Remove 6 (3-inch long) strips of peel from orange with vegetable peeler.  Place in food processor with sugar and anise seed.  Process until peel is finely ground, scraping sides once.  Reserve 1 tablespoon of sugar mixture; set aside.
