1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Land O Lakes® Egg, slightly beaten

1 Land O Lakes® Egg, slightly beaten


Heat oven to 400°F.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips, 1 egg and just enough half & half so dough leaves sides of bowl.

Knead dough lightly 10 times on lightly floured surface. Roll into 9-inch circle; cut into 12 wedges.

Place wedges onto ungreased baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining egg. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheet.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

We've been making these scones for almost 20 years, since the recipe first came out, printed on the inside of the butter carton. It became my son's specialty, and he still makes them at age 36. Always a hit at family holiday gatherings!
My daughter's favorite!! I like to add some nuts, like hazelnuts and maybe a drizzle of chocolate on top.
These were so easy to make, and delicious!
I've made these scones several times, and they are always a hit. Today a young high school student,male had them and asked me for the recipe so that he can make them himself. That's high praise.....
Very easy to make!
Easy to make and full of flavor.
