Chocolate Chip Scones

Chocolate Chip Scones

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter — cut into bits
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
3 tablespoons orange juice

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with
nonstick cooking spray. 2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar,
baking powder and salt. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in the
butter to make coarse crumbs. (Tip: Make sure butter is well chilled to
produce the flakiest texture.) 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″ circle about 1/2″ thick. With a 2 1/2″
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. Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
