This mini chip orange scone recipe is my favorite. A great orange flavor combined with the subtle taste of chocolate from the mini chips!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup salted butter, cold
1/3 cup orange juice (pulp in the orange juice will add more flavor)
1/3 cup, plus two tablespoons buttermilk
2 tablespoons orange peel, grated
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pastry blender (optional)
