Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Scones

I might have been thinking of cookies when I made these scones.

I was craving chocolate chip cookies the other day when a picture of some cream scones caught my eye. Why couldn’t I take the best flavors of a chocolate chip cookie and combine them with some scones? So, I did just that! I used brown sugar in the dough and added a full cup of chocolate chips. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla.

The results are spectacular! These scones have the warm flavors of chocolate chip cookies, but in a tender and lightly sweet scone. These make a great snack, breakfast, or dessert with a little whipped cream. Warm from the oven they are heaven.

Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Scones   Yield 8 scones

2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces and kept very cold
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup cold buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg, well beaten
Sugar for topping

Heat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add the cold butter and rub it in with your fingers until the butter is in small pieces, no larger than peas.  Add the chocolate chips and mix well.

Pour in the cold buttermilk and vanilla and mix until the liquid is absorbed.  The dough will look very dry and shaggy.

Turn out onto a cutting board and knead the dough three times by pressing the dough into a fat disk, folding the dough in half , turning it 1/4 turn and repeating.  Do not over knead.

Once kneaded press into an 8″ circle and cut the disk into 8 wedges.  Places the wedges on the prepared baking sheet and brush with beaten egg.  Top each scone with as much sugar as you like.

Bake the scones for 15 – 18 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.  Cool ten minutes on the pan before transferring to a wire rack.

  18. Shelly says:

    These looked so good I had to make them, what better way to avoid studying?! They JUST came out of the over and smell amazing… although I thought mine came out smaller than I expected (they don’t look like they “spread” like yours did). I can’t wait until the cool a bit so I can taste!!

  19. I followed the receipt and cooked them on my Silpat baking mat. It worked. I will be making these again.

    Just made these..yummy! Got 12 scones total. Did make a couple additions and one sub. Used 1C AP flour/1C pumpernikel flour (was curious on taste)and added handful of chopped pecans as well as handful of rolled oats. Tender and flakey. :) Thanks for a great and easy recipe.

    These look amazingly yummy!! I think I would prefer them warm rather than cold. Then the chocolate is still soft!
