I skipped the raisins and instead added chocolate chips and maple syrup. Mmmmm. What can I say? I like it sweet.
adapted from someone else's scone recipe
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
6 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix flour, sugar, and baking powder. Cut up butter and add to flour mixture. Add maple syrup and chocolate chips. In a separate bowl mix eggs and milk until blended and add to the flour mixture.
Drop by spoonful on cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until tops are golden.
Makes about 12 scones.
These came out so yummy. Chocolate chips and maple syrup were a great addition. My husband and daughter couldn't stop eating them. Ok, I couldn't stop eating them either, especially with a cup of Nespresso.
They came out more like nice fluffy cookies than scones, but hey, who cares. They taste magnificent! They are not too sweet and not too heavy. Just perfect.
