a new morning recipe has been found!

Scones I made this morning. So good. If I do say so myself:)

I came across this recipe for chocolate chip scones. I wanted to make them this morning before Brian left for a trip. I took them out of the oven right before we said goodbye. Oh my goodness! What amazingness we enjoyed! Such a simple recipe. One that Brian has already asked I make weekly. Well…I think I can do that! You have to try them! I’m thinking orange cranberry next or blueberry.

I made a couple changes: instead of OJ I used apple juice because we didn’t have any OJ and added a little orange flavoring. I also upped the amount to 8T of juice, as well as 8T of butter instead of 4T.

Chocolate Chip Scones



  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the chocolate chips. Mix in the orange juice to form a dough.
  3. Turn out the dough on a floured surface. Pat or roll into a 9 inch circle about 1/2 inch thick. With a 2 1/2 inch fluted biscuit cutter, cut out 12 scones, pushing the dough scraps together for the last few, if necessary. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Move to wire racks to cool.
