Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°(F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl mix together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and orange zest.
  2. Cut the butter into small cubes then quickly work it into the mixture (using your fingers) until lit resembles a coarse meal.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla, sour cream, and milk, then add to flour and butter mixture. Use a fork to stir everything together until just moistened.
  4. Add in the chocolate chips and gently fold them into dough with a spatula.
  5. Pour the shaggy dough out onto a clean, floured work surface and shape the dough into an 8-inch circle. Cut the dough into 8 wedges and carefully transfer to the prepared sheet. Lightly brush each scones with the egg wash, then sprinkle the top of each scone with sugar.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden brown.
