Great with a Cup of Tea: Toffee Scones with Chocolate Chips
Chocolate Chip Toffee Scones
Thanks again to Christi. :) These sound utterly perfect (and decadent) to enjoy with an afternoon cup of tea!
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup sugar 4 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped 1/2 cup chocolate-covered English toffee baking bits 2 cups cold whipping cream
For Topping:2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted granulated sugar
Preheat oven 375 degrees and lightly butter two large baking sheets. In large bowl,combine the flour,1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in chocolate chips, nuts and toffee. Beat the cream in separate large bowl until stiff peaks form, fold into dry ingredients. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface, knead lightly until a soft dough forms. Gently shape into a circle and with serrated knife cut into wedges. Place on baking sheets a few inches apart. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
