Chocolate Chip Scones



  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 large egg
  • milk - as needed
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • egg whites or heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; mix well.
  3. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles small peas.
  4. Break the egg into a 1-cup measure and add milk to make 2/3 cup. Add the milk, egg and chocolate morsels to the flour mixture and combine lightly until a loose ball is formed. A light hand makes for a light scone.
  5. Hand knead the mixture in the bowl 5 to 10 times and then break into 2 equal portions.
  6. Press down each ball on an ungreased cookie sheet to form a 6-inch disc.
  7. Score each disc into 6 wedges.
  8. Brush with a wash of egg whites or heavy cream.
  9. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
