Chocolate Chip Scones

These scones are incredibly easy to make and you could easily substitute blueberries, cranberries, apples, or raisins for the chocolate chips.

Here's what you need to whoop these babies up:

1 cup all purpose flour
3 tbsp white sugar
1½ tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp cold butter
1 egg
3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup chocolate chips

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Cut in butter until crumbly.  In a small bowl, combine egg and cream; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times.  Pat into a 10 inch circle.  Cut dough into six wedges.  Separate wedges and place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from pan to a wire rack.  Serve warm.

I like to add a little powdered sugar glaze to know just to add a few more calories that I desperately need.

For the glaze:
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1½ tbsp milk

Add milk to powdered sugar and whisk until smooth.  If you would like it thicker add more powdered sugar, if you would like it thinner add more milk.  

Now, go have a glass of milk and a chocolate chip scone!!
