Double Chip Scones - Butterscotch & Chocolate

Double Chip Scones - Butterscotch & Chocolate

Butterscotch is not my favorite flavor but my husband just loves it.  So, I created this recipe with him in mind and it was a success - it combines two types of "chips" Butterscotch chips and chocolate chips (the chocolate portion is the only reason why I like them - hahaha).

1/3 cup butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup Butterscotch Chips
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
1 egg
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup cream (half and half or whipping cream)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
cinnamon sugar for the top

In a large bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, salt & cinnamon.  Then "cut" the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or fork (like you would for a pie crust) - see picture below.  In a separate bowl lightly whisk the egg, vanilla extract and cream together.  Add the egg mixture into the flour mixture & stir just until combined (you may need to use your hands to mix in the final bits of flour).

Form the dough into a ball (see picture below on the left).  Divide the dough into five OR six equal pieces.  On a lightly floured surface - flatten each portion of dough (an inch thick) and make them into a square.  Cut that square in half diagonal to make two triangles (see picture below right).

Continue until you have 12 triangle pieces (Or 10 pieces if you divided your dough into 5 ).  Place each scone on a parchment lined cookie sheet (see picture below) and sprinkle the top of each scone with some cinnamon sugar.

Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes (or until desired "doneness" is achieved)
