Chocolate Chip Scones

Submitted by: Shannon Dow

1 3/4 C. flour
3 tbs. fugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 C. butter
1 egg
1/2 C. chocolate chips (mini's are best for this)
4-6 tbs. half-n-half
optional: raw sugar

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut in the butter. Add in the chocolate chips. Stir in the egg until blended. Stir in the half-n-half until the dough sticks together and pulls away from the sides of the bowl (you may need to use your hands).

Roll out into a 1/2 inch thick circle onto a baking sheet. Cut circle into 8 triangles and separate slightly. Brush egg or milk on the top to help the golden brown effect.
Optional: sprinkle raw sugar on the top

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
