Easy Chocolate Chip Scones Recipe


Every so often I don’t mind a little chocolate at breakfast–and this easy Chocolate Chip Scones recipe was a very big hit! It’s really fast to throw together. There aren’t any fancy ingredients and you probably already have everything you need. How great is that? Consider making a Pinterest board of scones recipes that use “Pantry Basics” to help keep track of favorite recipes (because this will become a favorite).

Scones are so much fun to make. In fact, scones have been enjoyed for a very long time! The first written mention of scones appeared in 1513, according to the Oxford English Dictionary. Let’s just think about that one for a minute. Florida was discovered by Ponce de Leon, Henry VIII was busy with the Battle of the Spurs, Scottish King James IV was killed by an English army, Machiavelli was banished from Florence by the Medici family, and Vasco Nunez de Balboa saw his first glimpse of the Pacific Ocean. It was a banner year of activity and discovery–and then there were scones. The word is similar to several words in various cultures that all pretty much mean the same thing: a sweet or savory biscuit or small cake.

The best part of baking scones is playing with the recipe a bit. Simple scones like ┬áthis easy chocolate chip scones recipe make a great base. Feel free to switch out the chocolate chips with dried fruit, nuts, or different extracts, or even different chip flavors. I admit I didn’t use the mini chocolate chips called for in this recipe, instead substituting in regular chips until it looked “right.” Have fun with this yummy scones recipe! Serve it up with a cup of great coffee or tea. I found this recipe on Food.com.
