Recipe Details


Whether you're looking for a tea time treat, sweet breakfast, or fun dessert, Chef Liz's scone recipe has you covered. A classic, buttery dough is studded with chocolate chips, brushed with egg wash, and sprinkled with big crystals of sugar, then baked until tender on the inside and golden on the outside. No need to hunt down toppings—we're sending you extra butter for serving, plus tangy raspberry preserves to pair with all that melty chocolate.

Add cubed butter (not reserved butter for serving) and, using your hands or a fork, work butter into flour mixture to combine into a crumbly texture—the butter pieces should be pea-size.
