Orange Scones with Chocolate Chips

I LOVE to bake. I Love to eat baked goods. And in order to keep from growing to roughly the size of a house I've learned to bake goods, eat a few and then share the rest with others. Yum for everyone. Tuesday morning I tried a new recipe and took it to work, where it was promptly inhaled by my fellow workers. In fact it happened so quickly that I didn't even see it happen. All I saw was the empty tray after I came back from turning on my computer. So I'm pretty sure this recipe is a keeper. You'll want to give this a try.

PS -- I made these early, early Tuesday morning in my really small dark kitchen, so the pictures aren't the best, sorry.

Orange Scones with Chocolate Chips

2 C. flour + 1/4 C. flour
3 TBS sugar
3 tsp baking powder
3 TBS orange zest
1/2 tsp salt
1 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 C. milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, orange zest, salt, and chocolate chips (by hand). Pour in milk. Mix well. Dough will be sticky -- I added about another 1/4 c. flour to make it at least a little less sticky. Divide the dough into 2 sections and put it onto a greased cookie sheet -- I put it on my baking stone and it did just fine. Bake 10-12 min.Slice into wedges and let cool, just a bit, before adding the glaze.

1 C. powdered sugar
2-3 TBS orange juice
Mix together until a thin icing consistency and pour over warm scone.A plate of delicious scones...devoured in a matter of moments. I think I'm going to have to make some more.
