I am not a scone lover.  I have never been and I didn’t think I ever would be… until I met these scones.

My 15 year old daughter is a tremendous baker!  She’s been baking for years and is truly talented in the kitchen.  As much as I would like to take credit for the bundles of yummy… they were made by my daughter!  (Thanks sweetie, they are amazing just like you).

These sweet and simple melt in your mouth scones are so amazing with a coffee or even as dessert!   I’m telling you, I’m hooked!

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine eggs, vanilla and heavy cream. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir just until it holds together. (if it’s dry you can add a little bit of additional milk)
  • On a lightly floured surface, knead dough by folding and gently pressing dough for 10 to 12 strokes until nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough into an 8-inch circle and cut into 8 wedges.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until they’re golden brown. Remove scones from baking sheet. Let slightly cool and top with icing.
  • Stir together powdered sugar and heavy cream.
  • Pour the glaze over each scone and smooth with a pastry brush, let glaze set on a wire rack

  5. I love scones but agree a lot of them are dry and crumbly. I’m pinning this recipe and will definitely try it soon. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Hi Holly! Ok, I for one really love scones!! However, I had a near disaster encounter with making my own last summer when we almost used them as door stops. So dry and heavy! Is this recipe pretty moist? You just might’ve convinced me to try homemade scones one more time…

    1. I generally find scones to be dry which is why I’ve never been a fan! I find these ones moist and tender, let me know how they work out for you!

  7. Those look delicious! I also didn’t like scones for a long time, it was chocolate chip scones that changed my mind too!

  8. I love scones and these look wonderful:) All you need is a cup of tea~Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines
