2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

3/4 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing the scones

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3/4 cup chopped milk chocolate


Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat to 400 degrees F . Sift flour into a medium bowl, then whisk in baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add butter and toss to break up the pieces, then smash each one flat between your fingertips. Continue smashing and rubbing until butter disappears into a coarse meal. Add milk chocolate and toss to combine, then stir in milk and cream to form a soft dough.
