Teresa Auditions for "Stepford Wives II"
Are You Being Served???
Just wanted to let you guys know that I survived the church tea. And my chocolate chip scones didn't even kill anyone! (Well, so far there haven't been any reported fatalities...) To prove it, here's the recipe:
CHOCOLATE CHIP BUTTERMILK SCONES
3 cups self-rising flour
2/3 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup cold butter (1 stick)
1 cup semi-sweet choco chips
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup confectioner's sugar
3 TBS water
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Add the choco chips; stir in buttermilk just until blended. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead gently 8-10 times. Pat into a 9-inch circle. Cut with a floured 2 inch biscuit cutter (I used the top off the PAM spray since I don't own a biscuit cutter.) Place 1 inch apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 450 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove to wire racks.
In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over scones.
Serve warm. Yields about 18 scones and approximately 3 lbs on your hips.
