chocolate chip scones | bake it



I like sharing recipes with you all because let's face it, who doesn't love food? And chocolate chip scones? Um. So. Good.

These were amazing so I am encouraging you to go make and eat them now. :) 


Ingredients
For dough:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
8 tablespoons butter, cold
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I used more because 2/3 isn't enough chocolate for me ;))
2/3 cup half-and-half, or heavy cream, cold
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
3. Cut the butter into ½-inch cubes. Make sure it remains cold.
4. Add the butter to the dry ingredients.
5. Using a pastry cutter, two knives, or your hands, cut the butter into the flour. It’s okay if a few lumps remain. Work quickly so that the butter doesn't melt.
6. Stir in chocolate chips.
7. In a separate bowl, whisk together the half-and-half or cream, the egg, and vanilla.
8. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
9. Use a fork or wooden spoon to mix it until the dry ingredients are moistened and the dough barely holds together. DO NOT OVER-MIX.
10. Turn the dough onto a floured surface. Shape the dough into a 6-in x 9-in rectangle.
11. Cut the rectangle into six 3-inch squares. Cut each of the square diagonally so you get 12 triangles.
12. Place the scones onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden. Let cool.

I made a simple powdered sugar glaze for the top. :)

Eeeenjoy!!
