  • 1 1/4 cups whipping cream
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Combine first 4 ingredients; cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture is crumbly.
  2. 2. Reserve 1 tablespoon whipping cream; add remaining whipping cream and chocolate morsels to dry ingredients, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

  4. 4. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.

  6. Cranberry Scones: Substitute 3/4 dried sweetened cranberries or fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped, for chocolate morsels, and add 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon with dry ingredients. Proceed with step 1.
