Cut butter into 1/2 inch cubes and put over flour mixture.


Using a pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut butter into mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.


Stir in the cranberries and chocolate chips just until they are coated with flour.


In a small bowl stir together, using a fork, the buttermilk and egg.

Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until tops are lightly brown.


If desired, brush tops with 2 T of warm apple jelly.


Cool on pan for about 5 minutes, then transfer to rack for further cooling.


Recipe can be easily doubled for 16 scones
