  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: 6 scones 1x

Ingredients:

Scones

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup cold, salted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/2 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons cold heavy cream

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

Instructions:

Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. LIne a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, and salt. Cut the butter into the mixture using a pastry cutter or a fork until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Add the orange zest and the chocolate.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and add 3/4 cup of the heavy cream. Mix the dough together. It should have a slightly dry texture, but not be crumbly. Add an additional 1-2 tablespoons of cream if the dough seems too dry.
  4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead it for 1 minute. Form the dough into a round or rectangle approximately 1 inch thick and use a knife or pizza cutter to cut into 6 equal pieces.
  5. Arrange the pieces on the prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Brush the wedges with 2 tablespoons of heavy cream and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the scones are golden and the edges are lightly toasted.

Glaze

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, orange zest, and orange juice until smooth. Drizzle glaze on top of the warm scones.
  2. Serve warm.

Notes:

I prefer these if enjoyed the same day as being made, but if you need to, store airtight at room temperature for up to 2 days.
