- 2 cups of flour
- ¼ cup of white sugar
- 1 ¼ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup butter, cold, cut into pieces
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup of dried cranberries
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ⅔ – ¾ cup of milk
01Preheat the oven to 400 F.
02First off, in a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
03Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it is a coarse crumb. Then mix in the chocolate chips and cranberries.
04Combine the vanilla and milk in a small measuring cup and stir into the flour mixture so it just comes together.
05Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough and gently and form it into a circle about seven inches around.
06Cut the circle in half and then cut each half in 4 pie shaped wedges.
07Finally, place the scones on a baking sheet, brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. I like to sprinkle a little extra sugar on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
08A tooth pick inserted in the middle that comes out clean will tell you that your scones are ready.
