unsalted butter, chilled
1 1/2 teaspoons
semisweet chocolate chips
This is the BEST recipe. I used fat-free hazelnut cinnamon non-dairy creamer in place of the buttermilk and left out the hazelnuts. A friend of mine from London says they are very authentic scones. Thank you so much for posting this!
Except for the hazelnuts, which I didn't have, I followed the recipe exactly. These didn't turn out great for me, and not sure what I did wrong. They are a nice golden brown on top, but the insides are not completely done. There is also too much almond extract for my taste. I'll try them again, but use either less almond extract next time, or try vanilla instead. It gives me something good to work with.
I have made these scones (minus the hazelnuts) several times for guests and they loved them and asked for the recipe. I used 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips and that was plenty. Enjoy!
This recipe is a new family favorite! I've long been searching for a scone recipe worthy of my favorite bakery scones, and this is the one. I will note however that for my taste the 1 1/2 teaspoons of almond extract is too much -- the almond flavor is so strong that it's like marzipan candy. I cut the amount in half and felt it was perfect, still noticeably an almond flavor but not overwhelming the other flavors. The full cup of chocolate chips will seem like overkill to many, but I'm a chocoholic so I was very pleased! It's also a lovely recipe made with dried cherries instead of chocolate chips.
This is a delicious scone recipe. Even my kids like this one. The chocolate chips and hazlenuts are a wonderful combination. Try this and you'll be hooked.
these are so yummy, and for scones, they sure come together well
These are the BEST SCONES I've tasted yet... They are delicous. Although not as easy as they would appear to be you won't be sorry after you've tried them. The Almond extract stands out amazingly, and gives the dough an excellent taste. I only had 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, so I added in a half cup of cinnamon chips aswell. I also didn't have hazelnuts, so I used sliced Almonds instead. The results were incredible. One thing I would reccomend, though, is to lower down on the chips and nuts, unless you like your scones jam-packed with toppings. Another thing the instructions don't mention is that its probably smart to flour the dough on the cookie sheet so that they are less sticky when you put them in to bake. Lastly, I personally paint my scones with egg whites for color, but I think that's more optional than necessary. As they are, the directions are great and easy to follow; the scones are grade A+, I'll definitely be making these again.
