Chocolate Chip Scones

I've watched every season of the Great British Bake Off that I can get my hands on, I just love it.  When the opportunity came up to try British inspired dishes with the Baking Bloggers, I spent hours looking through recipes. There was so much to choose from!  As always, I have to take into account my families allergies and general pickiness, so I settled on scones.

But even narrowing it down to that led me to so many amazing variations. I decided to look through my cabinets and let the ingredients I had dictate the flavors. Since I am overrun with baking chips at the moment, that made these Chocolate Chip Scones from Taste of Home the perfect choice.

These were so quick and simple to make!  You definitely could use any flavor chips you like, or even dried fruit. I'd have loved some chopped dried cherries mixed in along with the chips, but my my guys wouldn't have.  Next time I'll make a batch just for myself that way.

These were perfect with a cup of tea, and made great after school snacks too.  Thanks so much to Diane F for sharing her recipe!  Be sure to go and see what the rest of the #BakingBloggers made this month by clicking the links down at the bottom of the post. 

Chocolate Chip Scones



  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 Dash salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, combine egg and cream; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times. Pat into a 6-in. circle. Cut dough into 6 wedges. Separate wedges and place 1 in. on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.

These scones looks so perfect! I can't believe I have yet to see the Great British Bake Off! I know it's pretty wonderful.
They sound wonderful and I'm always happy when I can find a recipe to help me clean out the cupboards.

I am probably one of the few on the planet who has not seen one episode of the Great British Bake Off - well those of us in the foodie planet. Regardless, your scones look perfect and I am sure tasted absolutely delicious!
These scones really make me wish my blackberry ones had turned out...I have a big ol' sad face just thinking about them! These just look so perfect!

Scones were one of the things we made the most when I was a child, and they are still a favorite. And easy, as you say. These look great.
I really need to watch the Great British Bake Off. I've had scones on my radar to make and I think these chocolate chip ones are it!

I'm hoping to try them with blackberries this summer, we've got 3 bushes now, putting three more in. We've got blueberries too, which I also think would be great.

I love it because they're so supportive of each other, not like American competition shows.
Jolene said…
I definitely am overdue for a clean out, I've got things falling out when I open the doors LOL

I usually pop on an episode while I fold laundry :) I always learn something every episode.
Jolene said…
So easy! I wish I hadn't waited so long to try them!

The Great British Baking Show is one of my husband and my favorite shows. We have watched every episode, and I try many of the recipes. These scones are the best. I make them at least once a month. I substitute the whipping cream with sour cream, and also add dried crancherries.

Beautiful scones, what a great idea to finish the staples from your pantry first.
I love scones and have made them with dried fruits and with nuts, but never thought of putting chocolate chips in. Great idea.
Scones are such a nice treat and chocolate chips sound like a perfect addition!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
