Best choc chip scones EVER!!

A lot has being going on these past few weeks, the Royal wedding (despite being a Brit, I'm yet to check out the pics), Osama Bin Laden is dead and we found out we're having our 4th boy. Woo hoo! 4 wonderful blessings from the Lord that hubby and I are overwhelmed with such joy.

This past weekend we attended the Christian Heritage NW homeschooling conference. Though our eldest won't be 5 until the Fall, we thought that this was a perfect opportuinty to get as muich info as possible. Prior to the conference, I was really unsure whether I would homeschool or not. Having met such wonderful people and seen that it's actually possible, even without a degree, we have glady chosen to homeschool or kiddos.

So, before I go, I have to share my fav choc chip recipe with you. My friend made these frequently during our single days. I think she may have originally got the recipe from one of my sisters, either way they always trun out amazing.

here's what you'll need:
1 cup flour
2 tbs sugar
1tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
half a stick of butter (soft or melted)
1 egg.
A few hand fulls of choc chips depending on how chocolately you like them to be.

Combine the dry incredients and then add in the butter until fully combined. Beat in the egg until a dough is formed. Then work in your choc chips, place on a lighlty floured surface. I like to make it into a low dome shape and then cut into 4 wedges. Put a little milk on the top of each one and sprinke a little extra sugar. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 8 mins at 450degrees on your middle rack until golden brown on the top.
Note: You can double or triple the recipe to make more without it effecting the yumminess of these. One batch just makes 4 average size scones, so you may want to double it anyway.

I just love how quick these are to make. I use my kitchen aid mixer, so they are super quick and I can be getting on with other stuff while the mixer is doing all the work. I think I made these in the entire time it took for my kettle to boil water.
Enjoy :0)
