  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 C. granulated sugar
  • 1/3 C. unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 6 Tbs. cold butter
  • 2/3 C. chopped walnuts
  • 2/3 C. heavy cream
  • 1 egg, beaten

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives, forming coarse crumbs. Stir in walnuts. Combine beaten egg with cream and add to dry ingredients. Mix to combine and form soft dough. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead softly, just until all flour is incorporated. Divide dough into two equal portions; flatten each portion into a circle about 3/4 inches thick. Slice each circle into 8 wedges. Place wedges onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake the scones 15 to 20 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center will emerge with a few moist crumbs still clinging to it. Do not over bake. Remove to a rack to cool slightly. Serve warm or cold.

Notes

A very simple and delicious recipe to make chocolate scones with the nutty taste of walnuts mixed in them. Yummy!!!
