'Knead' a little morning pick-me-up? Bake away those gray mornings with homemade dark chocolate chip-studded scones!

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
  • Stir together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired.
  • Stir whipping cream into flour mixture, stirring just until ingredients are moistened.
  • Turn mixture out onto lightly floured surface. Knead gently until soft dough forms (about 2 minutes). Pat dough into 4 1/2 x 16-inch rectangle about 1 1/4 inches high. Divide rectangle into 12 smaller rectangles each measuring 1 1/2 by 4 inches. Cut each rectangle diagonally, forming a total of 24 triangles (see note). Transfer triangles to prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with additional sugar.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar, if desired.

  • Note:

    Rectangles can also be cut crosswise into smaller rectangles about 1 1/2 by 2 inches.
