White Chocolate Chip Scones

You guys, I've been holding out on you and I'M SO SORRY!  

I've been meaning to share this recipe with you for ages. This is my favourite recipe for, well, what I call scones. I don't precisely know what they are. They're definitely not your typical dense scone. They're light and fluffy and melt in your mouth. Seriously though, you guys, I'm in love. 

This are super easy to throw together and are just the right amount of sweetness to be really satisfying. I almost always put white chocolate chips in mine but these are also great with other mix-ins such as chips or dried fruit or both. 

I also think these could be done in a muffin pan successfully but haven't ever tried. If you do, let me know how it goes! 

White Chocolate Chip Scones
heavily adapted from MommyCoddle

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp salt
⅓ cup sucanat (or brown sugar)

6 tbs butter (melted or soft)
¾ cups milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp almond extract

1 to 1½ cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350*. Mix dry ingredients into a medium sized bowl and wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir well. Dough will be really sticky Add mix-ins and drop by spoonfuls onto lined cookie sheet. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes. Makes about 12. 

If using brown sugar, I would mix it in with the wet ingredients instead of the dry. 

If you freeze the chips right up until you mix them in they don't melt down as much. Mine just live in the freezer all year round.

Serve these with a thick later of soft butter on them. Seriously, just trust me on this one.
