Directions

Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, orange peel and nutmeg. Cut in butter until coarse crumbs. Stir in oats and pecans. Beat orange juice and egg together; add to dry ingredients (will be sticky). On lightly floured board, pat into a 6" circle. Cut into 8 wedges. Put on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 400 degrees, 10 minutes or until light brown. We like these for breakfast or brunch. Can butter them when you eat them if you like.
