      The only way I could tell you is if you email this to yourself and print it from there. You can also print from the internet as well. Just click the three vertical dots on the right hand side of the web address bar. You'll see it.

      I love orange scones! This looks like a great recipe. I sometimes put in a few dark chocolate chips, too.
