"These luscious scones can be drizzled with dark and white chocolate, and dusted with powdered sugar or left plain. Either way, they will be the hit of your brunch or afternoon tea. Serve with Creme Fraiche or Devonshire Clotted Cream, and enjoy with coffee or tea"....................Diana

3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup cold unsalted butter
3/4 cup light or heavy cream
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (8 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
3 oz. white chocolate, melted**
Confectioner's sugar

Optional Extras:
Creme Fraiche*, or
Devonshire Clotted Cream*

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Stack two baking sheets together and line top one with parchment paper (if baking scones freeform). Or, spray six to eight 3 1/2 inch individual tart tins with non-stick cooking spray.

In a food processor, place flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Process to combine. Add the butter and pulse to cut it into dry mixture. Process until you have a coarse, mealy texture.

Turn mixture out into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add egg, vanilla and most of the cream. Stir to make a soft dough. Fold in chocolate chips. Texture should be between a dough and a firm batter. With an ice cream scoop, drop scone dough into tart tins or onto baking sheet.

Bake until lightly browned (15-18 minutes).

Remove from oven and cool in tart tins or on baking sheet until slightly cooled, about 15 minutes.

Place parchment paper or waxed paper under cooling racks; transfer cooled scones to racks. Drizzle both melted chocolates over scones. After the chocolate has set, dust tops of scones with confectioners' sugar. Place scones on serving plate. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature with Creme Fraiche or Devonshire Clotted Cream (optional). Makes 6-8 scones.

*Note: Creme Fraiche and Devonshire Clotted Cream can be found in most large supermarkets in the dairy section, or at gourmet food stores, especially those that specialize in British and European food items. Also, they may be purchased online at: iGourmet.com

When melting White Chocolate, be careful not to burn it. White Chocolate or milk chocolate will burn much easier than dark chocolate as they have a much higher milk solid content. When melting white chocolate or milk chocolate, place chocolate in a double boiler on very low heat. Stir constantly, and keep your eye on it continually while melting.
