Buttery and flakey scones that melt in you mouth. These biscuits have loads of chocolate chips and are decadent when eaten right out of the oven.
Prep Time: 10minutes
Cook Time: 16minutes
Total Time: 26minutes
2 1/4cupsall purpose flour
1/2cupcold butter, cut into small cubes
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add the cold butter to the bowl and using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour. Continue until a crumbly consistency is produced. Stir in the chocolate chips.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg into the milk. Pour the milk mixture into the flour and stir together with your hands with a baking spatula until combined. Work gently and be careful to not over-mix the batter.
Spread a little flour on a flat work surface. Dump the batter onto the floured work surface and pat down to make a 8 inch disc. Cut into 8 equal wedges.
Place wedges on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Bake for 16-18 minutes. The scones should be just starting to brown on top.
They are the best served right away although the are very tasty served at room temperature.
