Check out some of these great photos from our dress rehearsal:
|My Dance: Poison and Wine|
Exhibit A: Kimmy suggested chocolate chip scones. Ever since that suggestion, I have not stopped looking for the perfect scone recipe to wow Kimmy.
I think I have found the perfect one...I usually like to find recipes that are amazing, but also not awful for your health. Scones provided me with quite the struggle. However, I found a recipe that attempted to make these treats slightly less awful while still tasting amazing. Plus, they are orangey and chocolaty!
I made these after dinner with my friend Margo. I was super nervous because I had never really just made up a recipe before. However, these came out AMAZING. Seriously, you have to try them! I believe this is the beginning of a new love affair with scones.
Here it goes:
Orange Chocolate Chip Scones
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp orange extract
1 1/4 cups half and half (or heavy cream)
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 tbsp of cold water
1. Mix the dry ingredients together.
3. Spread mixture over a lightly floured surface and slice into wedges. I made mine mini scones.
4. Brush each scone with the egg wash and sprinkle with some sugar. (Margo got a little crazy with the sugar :))
5. Bake at 400 degrees for about 13-14 minutes.
