Chocolate Chip Scones

I have a love/hate relationship with scones. They’re either really great or really dry and there is never an in-between. This recipe definitely makes a *really great* scone – one that doesn’t even require a side of coffee (but lets be honest, we’re still going to need the coffee).

Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 tbsp cold butter (cubed)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Mix together dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt)
3. Add cubed butter and let it work into the dry mixture (will still be lumpy)
4. Add milk and vanilla and mix until almost combined (I use my hands toward the end to get all the flour into the dough)
5. Turn out onto a floured surface and combine chocolate chips into the mix
6. Shape into a rectangle and cut triangles out (8-10)
7. Place on a lined baking sheet and cook for 12-15 minutes
