  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. In small bowl, stir coffee powder into 1 cup whipping cream; set aside.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix flour, 1/2 cup sugar, the baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips and reserved whipping cream mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened and dough leaves sides of bowl and forms a ball.
  • 3
    On cookie sheet, pat dough into 9-inch round. With sharp knife dipped in flour, cut round into 8 wedges, but do not separate wedges. Brush with 1 tablespoon whipping cream; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.
  • 4
    Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; carefully cut to separate wedges. Serve warm and top with whipped cream and additional chocolate chips.

Expert Tips

  • The key to perfect scones is mixing only until the wet and dry ingredients are incorporated, and then handling the dough very lightly.
