Chocolate Chip Scone

These scones are a recipe I make quite often. I even bring the recipe with me when we travel to see friends or family and make them as a treat to say thanks for having us. This is a mixture of several scone recipes that I liked for various reasons.

Chocolate Chip Scones

2 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup butter, chilled and cut into cubes
1 cup mini chocolate chips (may substitute currants)
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Combine dry ingredients. Rub butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour in cream and mix just until combined (DO NOT OVERMIX). Roll out to ¾” thick and cut with 2” biscuit cutters, or form into round and cut into wedges. Bake at 450 F for 15 minutes.

Even better with a cinnamon sugar glaze! And as in the picture, best with jam and whipped (or clotted) cream.
