Ingredients
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 5 tbsp butter , frozen and cubed
  • 1 cup heavy cream , cold
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • salt , to taste
Instructions
  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until well combined.

  2. Then, add in the cubed butter and crumble it into the dry ingredients using your fingers. Once the butter is pea-sized and evenly combined with the dry ingredients, pour in the cream and mix until it comes together.

  3. Then, take the dough out onto a floured work surface and lightly knead to form a rough dough. Do not over-knead, or the butter will melt and the dough will become too wet.

  4. Fold in the chocolate chips and then form the dough into a rough circle shape. Cut into 8 slices and place onto a lined baking tray.
  5. Chill the scones for 15 minutes to let them harden. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425oF/220oC .

  6. Once the scones are chilled, brush the scones with some extra heavy cream and sprinkle with some sugar. Bake the scones for 12-15 minutes until nice and golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before eating. Enjoy!
