I found this recipe on epicurious, and went to share it with my friends on 'zaar, but ocean~ivy had beaten me to it! Hands down, these scones are tops. I made a couple of alterations: I didn't beat the cream before adding it to the recipe. I will try doing that sometime, but the scones certainly didn't seem to suffer from it one bit. I didn't use nuts, and also added almost an entire cup of toffee bits. When the dough was formed, I pressed it out to one large round that was about 1/3-inch thick. Instead of making wedges, a biscuit cutter was used. My recipe produced 21 rounds, that had a nice, light crumb, and smooth, creamy texture. I'm making the basic recipe again very soon, omitting the chocolates, and using fresh seasonal berries instead. These are great.
These are sooo yummy! I served them for Valentine's Day breakfast. I cut down the sugar and chocolate chips...it seemed a bit much, but they were still fabulous. The recipe makes 12 large scones.
This is simply an outstanding scone recipe. I've tried making scones once before without success, and I admit that I was skeptical of how well these would turn out as I mixed the whipped cream into the dry goods, but these sure delivered! I used 1/2c chocolate chips and 1c toffee bits and then drizzled the cooled scones with 1/4c melted chocolate chips wisked with 1tbs milk for a final touch; these were a real crowd pleaser!
