Cinnamon & Chocolate Chip Scones
This was a long work week. I ran into more supply chain delays this week than ever before. Just not a fan of this new normal. Which is why I bake. Really feeling quite tired tonight. I feel like I have hit the wall. But still I must bake.
This is one of my favorite scone recipes. I have no idea where I found it but I went so far as writing it in writing in my book of important recipes.
Ingredients and Method
2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbs sugar
Combine these 5 ingredients.
Cut in 1 stick of butter
Add 1 cup cinnamon chips. For this batch I used 3/4 cup cinnamon chips and 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips.
Next combine the following ingredients and add to the flour-
1 egg yolk, save the white for the glaze
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup plain yogurt
Using a large spoon, stir the dough ingredients until all is moistened and holds together.
Line a baking sheet with parchment;.
Scrape the dough onto the floured parchment using your hands or a rolling pin shape the do into a square or rectangle that is 3/4" thick.
Using a knife, cut into the size scones you want. You can shape in a circle and cut into wedges or use a scone pan.
I pop the tray of scones in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Pre heat the oven to 375˚. Some recipes say 425˚ but 375˚ works for me,
Brush the tops of the scones with the egg white and sprinkle with raw sugar or if I had thought of this earlier, cinnamon sugar would be nice.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes.
