Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Scones
- baking sheet
- parchment paper
- mixing bowls
- measuring cups & spoons
- pastry cutter
- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ⅓ cup granulated white sugar
- ¾ cup cold browned butter *, cubed
- ½ cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup chocolate chunks
- Preheat the oven to 400℉. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Whisk the flour, baking powder, and sugar together in a large bowl. Cut in the cold browned butter using a pastry cutter until the pieces of butter are the size of peas.
- Whisk together the milk, egg, and vanilla in a small bowl and add to the flour/butter mixture along with the chocolate chunks. Stir together until the dough just starts to come together. Turn the contents of the bowl onto a clean counter and knead the mixture until it forms a loose ball. Do not over-mix!
- Flatten the dough into a round about 1 inch thick and 8 inches in diameter. Cut the round into 8 wedges using a pizza cutter and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 14-16 minutes or until the undersides are golden brown.
- Let the scones cool on their baking sheet. Enjoy!
