Chocolate Chip Scones
This is the first time I’ve made scones and wow did they disappear fast. I used an Ina Garten recipe for orange cranberry scones, and just switched out the fruit for chocolate chips (white and dark). The recipe says it will yield about 14 scones but I got around 2 dozen. I ended up baking half and freezing the rest, which I already can’t wait to bust out next weekend. I have had a lot of disappointing dry, crumbly scones and I was relieved that these were quite buttery, moist and perfectly flaky. In fact, they were so good that I skipped making the drizzle glaze for the tops–the sugar crystals were enough.
