Original recipe makes 24 scones Change Servings


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Stir together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired.
  3. Stir whipping cream into flour mixture, stirring just until ingredients are moistened.
  4. Turn mixture out onto lightly floured surface. Knead gently until soft dough forms (about 2 minutes). Pat dough into 4 1/2 x 16-inch rectangle about 1 1/4 inches high. Divide rectangle into 12 smaller rectangles each measuring 1 1/2 by 4 inches. Cut each rectangle diagonally, forming a total of 24 triangles (see note). Transfer triangles to prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with additional sugar.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar, if desired.

I just LOVE this recipe. I have made it a number of times and every time they turn out great! A bit rich/sweet for breakfast but perfect for a snack or tea! They were very moist when fresh from the oven, dryer when cooled but not overly so. Cinnamon chips work great too! Also, I have made with 2% milk because that's all I had and they tasted the same (great!) but the texture did change a bit (a little "chewy").

this was my first scones recipe, and it didn't turn out very well. maybe it was just me, but they were extremely dry on the outside and really wet on the inside. the taste was satisfactory but it didn't look very good.

These are basically AMAZING. I used regular old bittersweet chocolate chips and Splenda, just what I had around, and they turned out really well. I would probably sprinkle them with real sugar next time; the Splenda looks a little bizarre on top. I am by no means a kneading connoisseur, so I had a bit of trouble getting all the dough kneaded together (felt like I had added a bit too much flour and that those chocolate chips would never blend in!), but I got it after about 5 minutes. (Nice upper body workout!) I sent these to my family through the mail, and they loved them a week later.

Took these to work and got rave reviews, the were easy to make and came out well. be careful not to burn the bottoms. the description for cutting was hard to follow, but I think I figured it out for nex time.

Delicious! I made these for Christmas morning brunch, and the whole family loved them! They were so easy to make, too. I used mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, which worked out great. Try these, you won't be disappointed!

Excellent recipe! This is the first time I've used whipping cream instead of butter in a scone recipe, and it sure made it a lot easier. I used a giant hershey dark chocolate bar and chunked it up (couldn't find the chips in the store) and I think I'd prefer that to the chips. Definitely my favorite scone recipe so far.

OUTSTANDING, I love these scones, as the other Renee said, they are to sweet and rich for breakfast, but great any other time.

These were fantastic and easy to make! I've never made scones before, not to mention never made anything 'bready' before - this recipe made things wonderfully simple and the result was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend and I both love them and can't wait to try variations!
