Okay, so I needed to separate all of these scone recipes...I have too many, but also there are never too many scones. I would say that the base for all of these is by far my favorite. I really have become a scone snob and I hope these live up to the hype for you too.
I redid these as hearts for VDay...well really Galentine's Day. but check out the others like goat cheese and thyme, chai infused, lavender white chocolate, or earl grey lavender tea infused follow their links or search scone on the site.
Makes 8 scones per recipe
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ tsp sea salt
½ cup sugar
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold
2 Tablespoons chocolate chunks
½ cup + 2 Tbsp heavy cream
pinch of salt and/or coarse sugar
Preheat oven to 425° F, prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly flour one.
In large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Cut in the butter (use cheese grater to make this easier), the mixture needs to be a little chunky, not smooth. Add in chocolate chunks. Mix.
Pour in the heavy cream and egg, mix with hands until a dough forms. Roll dough out on a floured surface and form a circle about 1” thick.
Cut your dough into triangles as you would a pizza with a pizza cutter (or use cookie cutter to make shapes like hearts). Brush the scones with a little heavy cream. Sprinkle with a little salt and/or coarse sugar.
Place scones on prepared sheet separated 1-2 inches. Bake for roughly 20 minutes or until slightly golden.
Remove scones and let cool.
