Not too sweet, but full of deep chocolate flavor. These heart-shaped scones are perfect for any Valentine's Day tea!
- Recipe -
2 cup flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
3/4 t. baking soda
1/8 t. salt
1/2 cup butter, cut into small cubes
1 egg yolk
1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 ̊F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the pieces are the size of peas.
2. To the flour mixture, add the egg yolk, yogurt and chocolate chips. Use a spatula to carefully toss the ingredients together.
3. When the mixture starts to come together and creates larger pieces of dough, stop mixing and turn out onto a floured board. Pull the dough together with your hands and lightly knead until the dough is nearly smooth. Use your fingertips to pat the dough out into a 10"-12" circle. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter and begin cutting out the scones. Place on the baking sheet, leaving room for them to rise in the oven. Continue cutting out heart-shaped scones by gathering the bits of dough and patting them out.
4. Bake for 16 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool.
