Chocolate Chip Scones


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 450. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cut butter into 1/4" cubes and toss in the flour. Then cut with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  4. Add cream and stir with a spatula just until it starts to come together (we are going for somewhere between pie crust and biscuit here).
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and ball it up gently with your hands. Don't over-knead, just sort of squeeze until it all sticks together.
  6. Flatten the dough out into a rectangle, about 8x10x3/4". Using a bench scraper, slice into 8 squares (or triangles if you prefer.
  7. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet and bake 12-15 minutes until they are lightly golden brown on top.
