Chocolate Chip Cream Scones - Tuesdays with Dorie
Chocolate Chip Cream Scones

This was supposed to be ice cream. And it's not.
I'm a wee bit behind with my Tuesdays with Dorie postings. Seems that Tuesdays just comes too quickly. I missed these scones from a couple weeks ago...and I didn't freeze my ice cream maker in time for the sorbet. Yes, sometimes baking needs a bit more planning than I can do in the summer. :)

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Lynne of Cafe LynnyLu chose Cream scones on page 27 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Scones are super easy and take just a few minutes to make. Mix together with your hands and a spatula, form into rounds and cut. I love my bench scraper for making scones...it can cut the scones and scrape up any crumbs for easy cleaning. I made Dorie's cream scones recipe and subbed the currants with mini chocolate chips.

I love that you subbed in the chocolate chips! Something I always have on hand. I'll be pulling the book out soon to make this one!

Scones (or anything involving cold butter) are not easy for me because I have hot hands. I have to use the food processor in order to make cold-butter dishes. I wish they were as easy for me as they are for you because I would love some of those scones. They look amazing. I love looking at the cold disc of dough before it is cut. Lovely job you did here!
