I am always surprised when I hear that one of my friends have never tasted a scone. They are a staple at our house for breakfast and snacks. They are just as easy to whip up as a batch of muffins, but they have less sugar. And the flavor combinations are endless! I am totally and completely in love with scones, and if you’ve never had one, I insist that you try one asap. They are so good!

Yield: 1 dozen
Ingredients
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut, cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • For topping:
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
  • 1/4 cup toasted coconut
Instructions
  1. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Grate in the butter and stir till coated. (Or you can cut it in with a pastry blender.) Add the chocolate chips and coconut. In a small bowl, combine egg, vanilla, and milk. Add to dry ingredients and stir lightly till just moistened. If you need to add a little more milk you can. Don't over-mix!
  2. Divide dough in half and pat into 2 circles that are about 5" across. Cut each into 6 wedges. Place on cookie sheets. (Tip: For great texture and scones that rise up instead of spreading out, freeze the scones on the pan for 30 minutes.) Bake in a preheated 425° oven for about 18-20 minutes or till golden brown.
  3. Melt the 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and drizzle over the scones. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
