INGREDIENTS

3 3/4 cups bread flour
1 Tbs + 2 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract 
2 1/2 cups heavy cream (for brushing on the top)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°F (176°C).  In a bowl mix together the bread flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and  DARK CHOCOLATE CHIPS 60% with a spoon.
  • In a standing mixer bowl add the cream and vanilla extract.  Place the dry ingredients on top of the cream.
  • With a paddle attachment or by hand mix the scones until just combined. Roll out dough onto a flat work surface and gently knead the dough if needed.
  • Divide into 3 parts.  With a 6" ring or freehand press one part of dough into a 1" high by 6"  diameter puck.
  • Do this with both the remaining dough parts.  Cut each puck into 6 sections like a pie. 
  • Divide onto 2 baking sheets.  Brush with cream and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are a golden brown.  Turn sheet pan halfway through baking. Cool and enjoy!
