Chocolate Chip Scones

This recipe is something that you can change up to make just about any scone with. Just swap out the chocolate chips and add whatever your preference is. This version I use chocolate chips, it is my go to when I am looking for something that is not overly sweat but fulfills my chocolate craving.

Here is what you will need:

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of cold unsalted butter cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup of milk (with extra to brush on top of scones)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Chocolate chips
  • Course sugar to sprinkle on top

Here is how to make it:

  • Preheat the oven to 350° and line a cookie sheet with parchment or a silpat.
  • In a food processor combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pulse to combine.
  • Add the butter and pulse until combined with the flour mixture.
  • Add the milk and vanilla and pulse until a dough starts to form.
  • Add in the chocolate chips (I used a cup) and pulse until some of the chocolate breaks up into the dough but most of the chips are still intact.
Handle the dough as little as possible when shaping into a disk. You will want to cut the sections as evenly as possible
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and gently fold over the dough trying not to handle it too much and shape into a disk about 1″ thick.
  • Cut the dough into 8 wedges and place on the prepared cookie sheet.
brush the milk on the top of each scone and sprinkle with sugar
  • Brush lightly with the extra milk and sprinkle with course sugar.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes or until they begin to turn golden brown.

I hope this recipe inspires you to be creative in your kitchen – enjoy!
