Serves:12 scones
Prep time:1 hour
Cook time:25 mins
Total time:1 hour 25 mins
Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ pound unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup low-fat plain yogurt (or sour cream)
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
 Instructions
  1. Whisk together flour and baking powder in a medium sized bowl.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter until creamy. Add sugar and beat 3 minutes on high until pale and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Slowly add the flour and baking powder mixture into the egg mixture, blending well.
