WWD? Cream Scones

I'm a day late and a dollar short. But I have some really good scones. I kept meaning to make these, and time got away from me. This afternoon, I finally pulled it together.

These were simple to put together. I used half and half because I didn't have heavy cream. There is a tiny amount of sugar in the scones, so instead of currants, I used milk chocolate chips as my mix in. I also sprinkled the tops with some coarse sugar.

Mmmm. Hot out of the oven!
This recipe got a big thumbs up from everyone. I'm still not great at mixing and leaving a little flour behind. I have to blend it all, and I'm sure that the texture suffered some. Having said that, these are great. I would absolutely make them again.

Just look at that golden brown deliciousness with the shiny coarse sugar. And don't forget the chips!

Glad you got these done because they look great. Chocolate chips would add just the hint of sweetness.

Finally, you are a day late...it makes the rest of us feel a whole lot better...by the rest of us, I mean those of us who are quite often a day late, or perhaps a no show! These scones were so good...and look so good, win win!

I haven't tried chocolate chips in a scone, but it sound delicious!

Julie, I can't find your email addy. I wanted to let you know that I haven't given up on the group but will be out of town for three weeks.

We had chocolate chips in some of ours, too, but used dark chocolate ones. I always forget about milk chocolate chips. =)

Overmixing never seems to hurt scones all that much. Thankfully! Glad these were a hit around there; they sure look good.
