Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Baking powder + Salt
  • Sugar
  • Butter, cold
  • Egg
  • Milk
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Coarse sugar
  • Egg wash

Butter: Make sure it’s cold. Not frozen, but, cold.

Coarse Sugar: This is can be found in the same section as your regular granulated sugar in the grocery store. It is also referred to a sparkling sugar or sanding sugar. I use a natural turbinado sugar for this, check out the recipe card for the product I like.

Egg Wash: Simply whisk an egg in a small bowl with about a tablespoon of water.

A Few Tips About Cutting the Butter into Flour:

  • The goal of cutting butter into flour is to achieve a pea size-crumb like texture with your flour. This process will give you a flakier scone.
  • This can be done with a pastry cutter, two knives, a fork or a food processor.
  • Be sure your butter is cold, not frozen, cold.
  • Whichever way you chose to do this, just make sure you don’t over mix it.

A few notes:

  • Be sure not to over mix your dough. Overmixing your dough can give you dense scones.
  • Storage: Keep leftovers in a covered container or storage bag. They will be good for 2-3 days. If desired, you can freeze them for future eating. Again, keep them in a covered container/storage ( freezer safe). They will stay good for a couple of months. Reheat in the oven or microwave when you are ready to eat.
