How to make it

  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt together.
  • With a pastry blender, cut in butter to form small, coarse mixture. Lumps should resemble pea-gravel. Not all of the flour will necessarily be incorporated.
  • Once blended, stir in sugar.
  • Mix buttermilk, eggs and vanilla together well and pour into center of flour mixture. Using a fork, bring all ingredients together very quickly. It will still appear wet, which is what makes these scones more muffin-like.
  • Turn onto a well floured surface in a lump and flip over once to coat both sides in flour. Cut dough in half.
  • Lay first half out on floured surface and gently form in a rectangle. Sprinkle with 1/4 bag of chips. Fold in half, and sprinkle with another 1/4 bag of chips. Fold over again, then stretch dough slightly into a rectangle. Cut in 8 pieces.
  • Repeat with other half of dough (you can always put berries or some such other filling if you want)
  • Brush each top with melted butter, sprinkle decorative sugar (I like the coarse ones) and bake for 20 min at 425 F.
  • Enjoy!
