Get ready for a regal tea with these English scones, redolent with chocolate chips and flavoured with orange juice. Make sure your butter is well chilled to produce the flakiest texture possible.
This is a SUPERB recipe! I made the suggested changes of adding 8Tb OJ and 8Tb butter and orange zest from 1/2 an orange...and instead of using a biscuit cutter, I just flattened the dough to 3/4" instead of a 1/2" and cut into triangles. I ended up with 8 good sized scones so I increased the baking time by 3-4 minutes. They were awesome tasting- the zest really brings up the orange taste up a notch. - 15 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yummy!! Like everyone else I had to use way more orange juice (I didn't keep track of how much just kept adding until it seemed right). I also used chocolate chunks and it ended up tasting just the chocolate scones at Starbucks. Now I can save my $1.50 and just make them at home - thanks!!! - 27 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delish!!! (Just keep adding OJ little by little until it forms a dough.) - 18 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
