Milk Chocolate Scones

These not-too-sweet scones are a delicious treat any time of day but make a decadent addition to brunch. Pop them into the oven after the bread pudding and potatoes come out. By the time the pudding has rested, the scones will be ready.

Preparation

Whisk together cream, eggs and vanilla; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until in coarse crumbs with a few larger pieces. Stir in chocolate. With fork, stir in cream mixture until dough forms.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead once or twice until dough comes together. Roll out or pat into 9-inch (23 cm) square; cut into 9 squares. Halve each square diagonally. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. (Make-ahead: Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Whisk egg yolk with 1 tsp water; brush over scones. Bake in 450ºF (230ºC) oven until tops are golden, 11 to 12 minutes. Serve warm.
