Orange Scone Drops

Mini Chip Orange Scone Drops

2 cups All-purpose flour
1/3 cup Granulated sugar
2 teaspoons Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking soda
1/3 cup Butter or margarine
1/3 cup Orange juice
1/3 cup Milk
2 tablespoons Orange peel — grated
1/2 cup Miniature chocolate chips
3 tablespoons Granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees; grease cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda; blend well. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add the orange juice, milk and orange peel; stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.

Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls two inches apart onto the cookie sheets. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the scones.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from the cookie sheets. Serve warm.
