Baked scones because we don’t buy bread for breakfast anymore. We rely on my baking. MUAHAHAHAH. Was feeling fat and lazy, so I just decided to bake some chocolate chip scones since they were fast and easy. Got my recipe from http://www.annies-eats.com/2010/08/04/chocolate-chip-scones/ Here’s the recipe

Chocolate Chip Scones

Ingredients:
1½ cups plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
¼ cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
1 tbsp. butter, melted

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375˚ F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.  Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl; stir to combine.  Toss in the chocolate chips and stir to blend.  Add the heavy cream to the flour mixture, stirring just until a dough forms and the dry ingredients are incorporated.  Knead the dough very briefly to ensure even mixing. Guesstimate and separate the dough into 6 equal pieces and pat them down on the baking sheet. Brush lightly with melted butter and sprinkle with additional sugar/heavy cream (if using).  Bake 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
