Makes 16

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt

1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed

1 cup dried mandarin oranges, chopped

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

3 large eggs, divided

1/2 cup vanilla yogurt

Garnish: fresh orange zest curls

  • Preheat oven 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in dried oranges and chocolate chips.
  • In a small bowl, lightly beat 2 eggs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; add eggs and yogurt, gently stirring to combine.
  • Turn out dough on lightly floured surface, and gently knead until a smooth dough forms. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to a 3/4 inch thickness. Using a 2 1/4-inch fluted round cutter, cut 16 scones from dough. Place scones on a prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake until wooden pick inserted comes out clean, approximately 15 minutes.
  • Garnish with orange zest curls, if desired. Serve warm.
