Chocolate Chip Scones - A Family Feast

Chocolate Chip Scones

  • Prep Time: 1 hour
  • Cook Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes
  • Yield: 12 scones

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt (or sour cream)
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Whisk together flour and baking powder in a medium sized bowl.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter until creamy. Add sugar and beat 3 minutes on high until pale and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Slowly add the flour and baking powder mixture into the egg mixture, blending well.
  5. Then add yogurt, again mixing until blended. Fold in chocolate chips until blended throughout the dough.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 45 minutes. (This recipe may be made in advance and refrigerated overnight.)
  7. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Filling a 1/3 cup measuring cup, make scones and form into round balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Then turn the oven down to 325 degrees and bake for 10-13 minutes more until lightly golden.
