As Aired on June 21, 2013
Recipe Courtesy of Chef Bryan Woolley
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
zest from 1 large orange (about 2 tablespoons)
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk
For the Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
zest from 1 orange
2 tablespoons orange juice
1.) Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
2.) In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, cinnamon and orange zest.
3.) Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles crumbs.
4.) Stir in the chocolate chips.
5.) Whisk the milk and egg together and pour the mixture into the mixing bowl.
6.) Stir until just combined. It helps to use your hands and knead it lightly.
7.) Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Pat the dough into and 8-inch circle.
8.) Cut the dough into 8 wedges.
9.) Place the wedges onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
10.) In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, orange zest and orange juice until smooth. The glaze should have enough liquid in it to drizzle onto the scones so add a little more orange juice if needed.
11.) Drizzle over the scones.
