toffee chocolate chip scones
And yet another treat for work. I've been on a scone kick lately mostly because they are so yummy but also they are so easy to make. You could drizzle chocolate over the top of these if you desire, but they are good just the way they are.

Toffee Chocolate Chip Scones
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
3 Tbsp sugar
5 Tbsp butter- frozen or very cold
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
1/2 cup Heath toffee bits
1 cup cream (don’t skimp or dough is dry)
2-3 Tbsp sugar for tops (optional)
Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Grate the butter in. (You want it very cold!) Stir in the chocolate chips and toffee bits. Add the cream and stir gently. Knead a few times till dough comes together. It will be crumbly at first, but it will come together. Pat into a 1″ thick circle. Cut in wedges and place on a silpat lined cookie sheet about 1″ apart. Brush tops with cream or milk. Sprinkle with sugar if desired. Bake at 400° for about 15-18 minutes or till light golden brown.
