DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Combine the first 5 ingredients in bowl.
  • Cut in the butter until the size of peas.
  • Add the yogurt or sour cream, egg yolk, bananas and chocolate chips.
  • Combine into ball. Flour a surface and knead gently until it comes together.
  • Grease a cookie sheet. Place ball in centre of sheet and pat down to form a disk, about 2 1/2 inches high (approx).
  • Cut dough in half and then in half the other way (now you have 4 pieces. Now repeat again. So now you have 8 triangles.
  • Pull trianges out from each other so they are not touching too much. This will give you lots of nice crust.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes. Time depends on how thick you made the scones. To test for doneness -- check the centres where they touch. If firm, they should be done.
  • For Chocolate Glaze:
  • When scones are done, put some mini choco chips on top of the scones. Leave for 5 minutes, then spread over top.
  • OR.
  • For Chocolate Cream Cheese:
  • Heat chocolate and cream until chocolate is melted.
  • Cool to room temperature.
  • Stir into whipped cream cheese.
  • Serve along side scones. YUMMY!
