scones

2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
3
tablespoons sugar
2
teaspoons baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
6
tablespoons cold butter or margarine
1
cup white vanilla baking chips
1 1/2
teaspoons grated orange peel
1
egg, beaten
1/2
cup half-and-half
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or fork, until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/2 cup of the baking chips, the orange peel, egg and half-and-half until soft dough forms.
  2. On lightly floured surface, knead dough about 5 seconds or until dough is smooth. Divide dough in half. Pat each half into a round, 1/2 inch thick. Cut each round into 8 wedges.
  3. On ungreased cookie sheet, place wedges 1 inch apart. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 10 minutes.
  4. Place remaining 1/2 cup baking chips in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal. Microwave on High 1 minute; press bag until chips are smooth. Cut off tiny corner of bag; squeeze to drizzle melted chips over scones. Serve warm or cooled.
