I came across this recipe on a blog and made them for Sophie's birthday tea party. They are so yummy. I didn't make the glaze the recipe calls for because I was serving them with whipped cream (instead of clotted cream) and I don't think they need it.
Miniature Orange Scented Chocolate Chip Scones
recipe adapted from Teresa Miller
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons orange zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups whipping cream (heavy cream)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, orange zest, salt, and chocolate chips (by hand). Pour in whipping cream. Mix or knead by hand, just until combined (about 45 second). Mix will be sticky. Flour surface. Divide dough into two sections and pat into two rounds, each approximately four inches. Note: Score each round first with a knife into 4ths , then 8ths. Then cut and put on a greased large cookie sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes. Let cool five minutes, then glaze.
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons orange juice
Mix together until a thin icing consistency to pour over warm scones.
