English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Posted by Lori:

A few days ago, I found this recipe on (by Marbalet).  Since we were feeding the high school boys' and girls' basketball teams Thursday morning, I decided to make these scones for them, along with breakfast burritos, sausage biscuits and gravy, hash browns, and fruit. (By the way, it was all GONE!  They did share with some of the teachers. :)  Anyway, though most of them had never eaten a scone, many of them liked the rich, chocolatey goodies.  The original recipe didn't have an icing, but I used a powdered sugar/milk/vanilla glaze and put some on top.

The ball players were amused that they were eating as the "Royals" do!  I'll be treating them again next week.  Might make some more scones, as well!



  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the chocolate chips. Mix in the orange juice to form a dough.
  3. Turn out the dough on a floured surface. Pat or roll into a 9 inch circle about 1/2 inch thick. With a 2 1/2 inch fluted biscuit cutter, cut out 12 scones, pushing the dough scraps together for the last few, if necessary. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Move to wire racks to cool.

Funny that the guys liked them! I think of them as a girls food.
