The perfect warm and bright January pick-me-up!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SCONES:
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1  Large Orange, Zest Only
  • ½ cups Cold Unsalted Butter (cut Into Small Pieces)
  • ½ cups Buttermilk (do Not Substitute)
  • 1 whole Large Egg, Lightly Beaten
  • 2 ounces, weight Dark Chocolate, Chopped Into 1/4" Pieces (I Used Lindt 70% Cocoa)
  • FOR THE ORANGE GLAZE:
  • ¾ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1  Large Orange, Zest Only
  • 1 Tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice

Preparation

For the scones:
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, cinnamon, and orange zest. With a rigid pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in the center, and then add buttermilk and egg. Stir just until combined (do not overmix). Gently fold in chocolate.

Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead 5 or 6 times. Pat into an 8” circle and cut into 8 wedges. Transfer to baking sheet. Bake until scones are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let scones sit on baking sheet for a couple minutes before removing to a wire rack.

For the orange glaze:
While scones are still warm, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together all glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle the orange glaze over the scones.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Best eaten on the day they are baked.

I made these today and they were very good! I will add them to my recipe book and make again. I had to bake them for about 20-25 minutes. Thank you for posting!
