4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsps baking powder
3/4 pound (3 sticks) cold butter chopped into cubes
1 cup mini chocolate chips
In a mixer bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Add the butter and mix till forms large peas. Do not overmix. Add the chocolate bits and mix till combined. Remove from bowl and put on counter. Knead only until it all comes together.
Roll to a 3/4″ thickness. Cut into rounds and place on a parchment lined sheet or a sheet lined with silpat or greased.
Brush each scone with some egg wash (one egg mixed with a little bit of water) and then top with sanding sugar – or regular sugar if you do not have sanding sugar.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
