Double Chocolate Scones

  • This is a delicious blend! Perfect with a cup of coffee. Perfectly sweet for breakfast!
  • Double Chocolate Scones

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 squares bittersweet baking chocolate
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

The easiest way to do this is in a food processor*. 

Put dry ingredients in food processor, whir slightly to mix. Cut butter into chunks and put in the food processor and whir until mixed and crumbly.

Melt bittersweet chocolate according to package directions and mix in with egg and sour cream beating slightly, pour into food processor, whir and slowly drop in chocolate chips until dough forms a ball. 

Place on greased (or parchment paper) baking sheet and press into a circle, about 8 inches. With a sharp knife, cut into 8 pieces (pie/triangles). Bake 20** minutes at 400˚. 

*If you do not have a food processor, you can do this by hand. Cut the butter into chunks, add the dry ingredients (mixed slightly) and use a Pastry Blender or a Hand Mixer to mix until crumbly.

Beat egg and sour cream slightly and then add to butter/dry ingredients and mix in with a wooden spoon, or knead by hand. The warmer the dough gets, the stickier, so you could start with frozen/grated butter if you are going to use your hands.

**I do 20 minutes on my stone baking sheet, regular baking sheets will probably be a few minutes less.

Serve warm or completely cooled.
