Chocolate Chip Scone

This is probably my favorite recipe that I have and it comes from my Aunt Lisa!  She makes it with cinnamon chips which is way better, but I can’t ever find those in the store (so sad) so I usually just make it with chocolate chips.

Chocolate Chip Scone

3 cups flour

1/3 cup white sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold butter

2 tbsp white sugar

Enjoy with a glass of milk or cup of coffee.  If you store them, put them in the microwave 10-15 seconds before eating again!  Huge crowd pleaser at any breakfast/morning meeting!
