Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/8 Cup sugar
  • 3/4 Cups flour, plus extra for rolling out the dough
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 Teaspoon orange flower water
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 beaten egg
  • 2 Tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 3 egg yolks
  • Dash of milk
  • Pinch of sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put the butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Rub the ingredients together until combined. Add in the orange zest, egg, milk, and orange flower water. Knead into a dough. Add the chocolate chipsto the dough.

Dust some flour on a clean surface and roll the dough until it is ¾ of an inch high. Cut the scone into a desired shape, so that it is about 2 inches in diameter, and place on a baking sheet. You should get about 10 scones.

Combine the egg yolks, milk, and sugar, and brush the surface of each scone with the egg wash. Rest the scones for about 15 minutes, and then bake for 12-15 minutes until cooked through.

Orange Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Orange Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
