Easy and Delish Chocolate Chip Scones!

Due to more crazy weather we're having in my neck of the woods, we haven't had school yesterday or today. For whatever reason, last night I went to bed with a hankering for something sweet for breakfast. I'm not a cook or a baker, but I'm not terrible either, so I thought about it and decided -- a scone! That'd be tasty. So this morning I got up and Googled "scones with Bisquick" because I have some of that (believe it or not) and I thought -- why not try?

Luckily for me, this recipe came up immediately. I made one quick modification because of an ingredient I didn't have on hand, but honestly -- if I have these ingredients at home then everyone does. (Trust me, ask Erin.) With that, I give you Easy Chocolate Chip Scones, a Betty Crocker recipe.

Ingredients

2 cups Original Bisquick™ mix

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I used mini ones.)

1/3 cup half and half (The original recipe calls for heavy whipping cream, but I didn't have that, so I modified by using half and half.)

3 tablespoons sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

Additional half and half

Additional sugar

Directions

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray or grease with shortening. Stir Bisquick mix, chocolate chips, 1/3 cup half and half, 3 tablespoons sugar, the egg and vanilla in medium bowl until soft dough forms.

2. Pat into 8-inch circle on cookie sheet. Brush circle with additional half and half; sprinkle with additional sugar. Cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate.

3. Bake about 12 minutes or until golden brown; carefully separate. Serve warm.

AND THAT IS IT! They are really, really good! And trust me, if I can make these, so can you! The only problem is trying not to eat them all in one sitting! I dearly love all things English, so I probably should have had tea with these, but as I am an American, and tea is, of course, anti-American, I did have coffee with mine. :)





Took a bite out of this one already! Couldn't wait!
