Donuts, Dresses And Dirt

These are possibly even better than the “other” scones. Lighter-than-air (not a sensation one typically associates with scones), melt-in-your-mouth-tender, and just enough chocolate to take them to the next level of deliciousness. And what if I told you that they are even easier to make? No rolling out dough, just some patting into a square-ish shape and cutting into smaller square-ish shapes.

Make these. As soon as possible.  You can thank me later. Just not with your mouth full. Which it will be.


2 cup flour¼ cup sugar2 ½ tsp baking powder¼ tsp salt1 stick butter – cold, cut into pieces1 cup heavy cream¾ cup mini chocolate chips1 egg, lightly beaten2 Tbsp sugar


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Using a rubber spatula fold in cream and chocolate chips until just incorporated – do not over mix.
  3. Pat dough into a square about 3/4 - 1″ thick and cut into 16 even pieces. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with egg and sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Bake for 14-16 minutes, until golden brown. Eat as soon as you possibly can – just don’t ruin your dinner like Chelsea and I did.
