So today I am going to share with you my beloved Chocolate Chip Scone Recipe.
Don't be intimidated (as I was), when you hear the word scone...it isn't nearly as hard as you think.
In fact, it isn't hard at all! I could whip up these puppies with my eyes closed. srsly.
Here, I'll show you-Little People's Chocolate Chip Scone Recipe
2 Cups all purpose flour
1/3 Cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 Tablespoons (frozen!) butter
1/2 Cup chocolate chips
1/2 Cup Cour Cream
1 Large Egg
Alright, so now that you have all of your ingredients together,
Preheat your oven to 400* and spread a piece of parchment paper on your cookie sheet.
*You can put the scones right on the baking sheet, but the paper makes them come out flawless.
Okay, so mix all of the dry ingredients together.
Take your butter out of the freezer and chop it up into tiny pieces- like you would an onion.
*Some people use a food processor, but I have just never been able to make that work.
*And remember to do it fast so your butter doesn't get warm and soft.
Then, add your butter to the flour mixture and continue chopping it into tiny pieces with a knife or fork.
This is what it should look like-
Once it looks like this, take out a small bowl and mix the sour cream and egg together.
Then add it to the dry/butter mix.
It will be very crumbly, and you will think that it needs more liquid- BUT IT DOESN'T!
This is very important, because this is what makes your scones all nice and crumbly. See?
This is what it will look like.
Okay, so then mix it together really good, then plop it onto your parchment paper.
And start forming it into a round, pizza-dough type shape.
Use the palm of your hand to shape the dough.
The dough should be about a thumbnail thick.
Then, carefully cut it like you would a pie- into 6 pieces.
Separate the pieces on your sheet and pop them in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
When they are done, they will resemble a biscuit- with slightly browned edges.
Warm and perfect.
So EASY! Right? Didn't I tell you?
You thought you couldn't do it.
You thought scones were just for snooty ole Southern Bells, and Mennonite women, didn't you?
(It's okay, neither of them have internet.)
Now go make a cup of coffee, and reward yourself for making this fabulous afternoon treat.
