English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones
Well, I found the perfect scone recipe to celebrate tomorrow's royal nuptials. These scones will surely  be delicious! Here's the recipe in case you want to make your own.

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3 tbsp. orange juice

1. Preheat oven 400 degrees. Spray 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 scones to baking sheet.
4. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Move to wire racks to cool.
