Mini Chocolate Chip Scones

Nice treat with a cup of coffee!

Total: 33 min
Cook: 18 min
Servings: 24 mini scones


Ingredients:

4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup very cold unsalted butter or frozen

1 cup heavy cream  (this is key or they are to dry)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup mini chocolate chips

___________________________________________________________________________________
Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 F (190C) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Thoroughly cut in butter (I prefer to freeze the butter, grate it using a box grater, and then cut it in that way. This method yields the flakiest scones, but is not mandatory — you can use cold butter cut in with a pastry cutter).

Measure out heavy cream in measuring cup and add vanilla extract. Stir gently.

Carefully stir heavy cream/vanilla mixture into flour mixture. You do not want to over-mix, but due to the amount of dry ingredients it may be tricky to well incorporate the liquid and the dry mixes. You may briefly use a KitchenAid or electric mixer on a low setting to help coax the dough to cling together.

Once dough is beginning to cling together, add chocolate chips, stir briefly, and then transfer to a very lightly floured surface

lightly knead the dough and chocolate chips together until you are able to form a ball.

Break the dough into 4 even pieces and round each one out into a disk about 5″ wide.

Cut each into 8 wedges and transfer to cookie sheet.

Bake on 375F (190C) for 16-18 minutes.
