Busy Mom Recipes - Sunday Scones

Our weekends are usually jam packed with activities.  But when I can, I like to get in the kitchen to make my family some breakfast treats.  My go-to breakfast items are usually kid friendly options like pancakes or Belgian waffles, with the occasional french toast thrown in there.  And when I'm up for something a little different, but still very simple, I whip up a batch of scones.

The great thing about scones is that the ingredients are items that are usually on hand in the pantry.  For me, the only exception would be orange juice.  Most of the scone recipes that I have come across require a tiny bit of orange juice.  However, my family and I are not regular orange juice drinkers so I had some recipe tweaking to do.  Luckily the recipe I did end up with worked fantastically with milk as a substitute for orange juice.  This weekend's scone was chocolate chip.  And off we go.


1 3/4 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
7 TB unsalted butter
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Cut in the butter until the mixture is nice and crumbly.  At this point, I just use my hands to crumble the butter and mix it all together.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Mix in the milk to form a dough.

On a floured surface, pat the dough into a 9 inch circle.  Cut into pie shape pieces.  

Transfer to baking sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 14 minutes.

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!
