Scone love.

31 May

I love a good scone.  Finding a good recipe has been difficult, though.  I want it to be crisp, flaky, and fluffy.  I’m pretty sure there are some opposites in there.  After playing around with lots of recipes, I think I’ve found the perfect combination.

  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar + 2 Tablespoon sugar divided
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 10 oz. chocolate chips (You could also go with cinnamon chips, as well!)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted

Combine flour, 1/3 c. of sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add in the cubed butter.  The mixture will be dry and crumbly.  Mix in the buttermilk and chocolate chips.  I just mix this by hand.  If you use a mixer, it can get over-mixed quickly.

Dump half of the dough onto a floured surface.  Knead it a few times.  Roll into a circle and cut into 8 wedges. Repeat with the second half of the dough.

Place wedges on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Brush with melted butter and sprinkle a little sugar on top.

Bake at 425 for 13 minutes.

This?  Is scone perfection.
