Recipe by Kathy!!
Although not a traditional combination, chocolate chips scones are big sellers at the bakery counter. I serve them with a baked omlette for brunch.

I made these this morning out of staples - didn't have shortening, so I used a stick of butter. Also skipped the sprinkling of sugar on top and used a simple powdered sugar/milk glaze, as that's what DD loves. She had a friend spend the night and they said they were way better than *$. High praise indeed from these girls. Very light crumb, not overly dense as some scones are. Delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
