scones, anyone?

Chocolate Chip Scones
Recipe by Ellie Brewer, tweaked by me (her grand-daughter)

Mix 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup white flour, 2 teasp. baking powder, 1/2 teasp. salt, 3 Tbl. brown sugar. Cut in 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) with a knife, then break up with fingers (the fun part) and finish cutting in with a pastry cutter or fork. 

Separately mix 1/2 cup whole milk with 1 large egg and 1 teasp. vanilla.

Add this to dry mixture along with 1/2 cup chocolate chips (or, ahem, more.) Mix with fork briefly until it forms a ball, then knead with hands 5 or 6 times. Form into flat round & cut into 6 or 8 wedges. Slice tops with knife, bake at 425* F for 18-20 minutes. Serve warm. :) Slather with butter & drink with tall glass of milk.

These are the best scones in the entire world. Enjoy!
