1 cup all-purpose flour
3 TBSP brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup real butter, softened a little
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 beaten large egg
1/4 cup milk
In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. Cut in butter with a pastry utensil or two butter knives side by side until resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oat and chocolate chips. Combine egg and 1/3 cup milk; add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (dough will be a little sticky).
On a lightly floured surface, pat dough into a 7 inch circle. Cut into 6 large or 12 small wedges. Place on a baking sheet. Brush with milk if desired. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes until light brown.
Comments: This recipe came from the most dedicated, creative and fun piano teacher our family ever had, her name is Linda. Her recitals always had a theme, a play like "script", often included costumes, always had prizes, and ended with a treat! These scones were offered after a "tea" themed recital and have become a favorite go-to scone for many Sunday mornings since. They mix up quickly and are ready just as quickly. Chocolate in the morning, who could ask for more!
