A little chocolate goes a long way!


There is something about a little chocolate in the morning that never fails to start a day out right...right? I have had this great scone recipe since 1998, and haven't found one I like more yet...


YUMMY CHOCOLATE CHIP SCONES

These are SO good and yet so wonderfully SIMPLE to make they will knock your socks off! I had never made scones before when I tried this recipe and was so pleased at how they turned out! You can't mess this scone recipe up, trust me! :)




Scones:

2 cups unbleached flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1-1/4 to 1-1/3 cups whipping cream

Topping:

2-3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl.
3. Add the chocolate chips.
4. Stir in the cream with a fork until the dough holds together in a sticky mass. (You may need to add a tablespoon or two more of cream until dough holds together.)
5. Turn dough out on a lightly floured board. Knead the dough several times.
6. Pat the dough into a 10" circle. Cut circle into 8 wedges. (You can also cut dough into rounds with a cookie cutter.)
7. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2" apart.
8. Brush scones with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.
9. Bake for abut 15 minutes, or until golden brown.





Eat and enjoy!


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! It's supposed to be a hot weekend here! (I am not a hot weather person so I am just hoping maybe they will be wrong!)

Blessings,

I was watching the TV series "Flash Gordon" the other day. One of the Characters was on planet Mongo and needed iformation and bribed the bar tender with Chocolate easter eggs. I guess Chocolate is the universal language.
