I Heart Breakfast

Posted in food, Z-boy at 1:20 am by Tricia

I heart breakfast – at least on Valentine’s day!

heart-shaped breakfast cookie

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones

1 1/4 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, warmed to room temperature
1 egg
2 Tab orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 tsp grated orange peel
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Thaw orange juice and warm butter. Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In separate bowl, combine egg, OJ concentrate, and orange rind; mix well. Add wet ingredients and chocolate chips to dry ingredients. Shape dough into a ball and place on a lightly floured surface. Pat dough into a circle about 1/4 inch thick. Cut circle into 8 wedges (or 10 if you’re a family of 5) (or however many hearts you can manage if making for a special treat) and place on a foil- or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

I think these originally came from a website called “Baking Bits”, but I no longer have the source written down. Z-boy called them “breakfast cookies” when he was little, so the entire family adopted the name. They’re yummy, and simple to make! Although they’re best fresh out of the oven and slightly warm, I made them Wednesday night so they’d be available for a special Valentine’s Day breakfast. (I don’t believe in early rising, not even for making special breakfast treats!)

    These are really yummy. I got the recipe from you a long time ago, maybe after we had the F2F brunch at your house? I don’t make them often because I can’t stop eating them when they are around. I like them in a heart shape. That’s cute.

    Johnna, they’re easy – you should try them some time! Other TJ, yup, these are the ones form the F2F. I know what you mean about eating too many. Turns out the youngest boy doesn’t like them, because of the orange flavor element, so I ended up eating more than my share…
