Hazelnut & Chocolate chip Scones

Hey everyone! It’s Zackarié and my first post for this ever-growing delicious blog on this un-eventful Sunday evening.

So! For this scrumptious recipe you’ll need:

~Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons chilled butter, diced
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped, toasted hazelnuts
1 large egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

~Steps

1) Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400°F. Lightly grease & flour a baking sheet.

2) In a large bowl, blend together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives suicide or fashion, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the chocolate chips and hazelnuts. In a small bowl, beat the egg, buttermilk, brown sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Combine the two mixtures, stirring gently until the dough holds together.

3) Turn the dough out onto the prepared baking sheet and pat it into an 8 inch circle. Using a serrated knife, score the dough into 8 wedges ( Do not cut all the way through the dough.) Bake for 15-19 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve hot.
