3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup buttermilk
4 teaspoons grated orange zest
1 teaspoon orange extract
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, whisk the first 5 ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips. In another bowl, mix milk, orange zest and extract until blended; stir into flour mixture just until moistened.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10 times. Divide dough in half. Pat each portion into an 8-in. circle. Cut each into 8 wedges. Place wedges on a greased baking sheet.
In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Lightly brush scones with cream; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
