These are a very moist and tender scone. More cake like than biscuit like. I stole it away from a co-worker of my husbands. He says you must use Bluebonnet margarine no subs and as I wanted the texture to taste the same I have tried no other. I plan on trying these with berries and perhaps almonds too. If you like your scones on the sweeter side I would add another 2-3 T sugar.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 5 tablespoons slightly chilled butter (use bluebonnet margarine)
- 3⁄4 cup semisweet chocolate chunk
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- Mix first four ingredients together with a fork like you would pastry dough. Cut the dough till the margarine is pretty much unnoticeable.
- Mix in Chocolate chunks.
- Stir in the cream, if it seems a little dry add a little more cream, but NO more than 1/4 cup.
- Use your hands to roll the dough till all flour is mixed in (adding cream if needed).
- Form into a flat, even circle. Cut into 12 "pie" pieces.
- Place each piece separately on a sprayed cookie sheet allowing enough space for each to raise a bit. Brush tops with more cream. Sprinkle with sugar crystals and bake in a 350 oven no more than 19 minutes. The bottom edges will just be turning brown. DO NOT over bake or they will harden.
If you can believe this I had never eaten a scone let alone made one. This are great! Kind of a cross between a cake and muffin, maybe a little drier but they were great dunked! This recipe is so easy. I did mine directly patted out on parchment on the cookie sheet then slightly separated them. The expanded and were still close together so the inside edges were still soft. I will make these again and maybe add a little more sugar to try. Thanks Bev!
