About this recipe: These scrumptious scones will make you feel like you're Queen for a day! The chocolate chips make them very tasty but the orange juice makes them special. Make sure butter is well chilled to produce the flakiest texture possible. Serve with cream or lemon curd.
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)
