     These days my daughter Kylie cooks as much as I do.  Every time I turn around that kid is whipping up something!  She saw these on All Recipes and just had to try her hand at them.  I have to say, they were absolutely SCRUMPTUOUS!!!  (A word I associate with "scones"!)  Kylie found a cinnamon glaze online to add to the top and I included it as well.

  • 1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 5 Tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled and cubed (she used regular margerine)
  • 1/2 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips (she used regular Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips)
  • 3 Tbsp. orange juice
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. 
  3. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.  Mix in the orange juice to form a dough.
  5. Turn out dough onto a floured surface.  Pat or roll into a 9 inch circle about 1/2 an inch thick.
  6. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 12 slices or "scones", pushing the dough scraps together for the last few, if necessary.  Transfer scones to baking sheet.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes.  Move to wire racks to cool.
  8. Drizzle with glaze below.
For glaze, mix together:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • Cinnamon to taste
