Easy Chocolate Chip Scone Recipe

Tender, soft, and perfect chocolate chip scones. This recipe is so EASY!

One of my favorite treats is a chocolate chip scone.  They are soft, tender and even a bit flaky when they are really good.  It is the perfect pastry with just a touch of chocolate to quench that craving.  Believe it or not though, before a few years ago I had never made a scone!  I have always liked them, but they seemed a little intimidating.  Out of my normal baking zone.  I don’t know exactly why, but it seemed like something to buy, not to make.

Boy was I wrong.  Making scones is SUPER easy.  Actually one of the quickest pastries that I make.  Once I started I was hooked.  Playing and experimenting until I got to my perfect recipe for the perfect scone. Whip it up in 10 minutes, cook it for 12 and in around 20 minutes you have better than the bakery goodness sitting right there on your kitchen counter ready for breakfast or to satisfy the most monstrous sweet tooth! Because, let’s just be honest I eat these around the clock!

So here is what you do {scroll to the bottom for a printable recipe}… mix your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and mini chips in a medium bowl.  I like to do this right in my stand mixer with the dough hook attachment.  Then pour in the heavy cream and turn the mixer on to low, or mix by hand until the dough comes together in to a ball.

As a side note, you can use regular chocolate chips in this recipe, but I really think, just like in these super thick cookies, the mini chips are so much more perfect in the end result because they give you a touch of chocolate perfect spread throughout.

Divide the ball into two smaller balls and then slightly flatten so that they are 1 1/2″-2″ thick disks.  You want them to be nice and thick so they rise up really nice and you have a lot of soft tender goodness inside once they bake.  Cut each disk into six triangles, then place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake at 425˚ F for 12-14 minutes or until the center is just set and the edges are lightly browned.

Let the scones cool for 2 minutes on a wire baking rack, then eat them warm, eat them cool, eat them  now, or later, even the next day.  They are pretty darn good whenever…. and addicting, so don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Enjoy!  Make sure you check out our other recipes here!

    Yum – I have never tried making scones, although I do buy them fairly often. I like how they are sweet, but not too sweet. Looking forward to trying them!
