I made these yesterday morning for a tea/coffee/snack get together, and they were a hit! Before I left the house, Reinman kept asking me to leave him a few. Hehe.

Mocha Scones

recipe from My Baking Addiction (great food blog, by the way!)

Scone Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups of flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 8 T butter, frozen
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee, room temperature
  • 1 egg

Mocha Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup strong coffee
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted

Directions:

  1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position, and heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a box grater, grate your frozen butter in flour mixture. Mix until you get a coarse meal, and then add in chocolate chips.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk sour cream, coffee, and egg.
  4. Stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until you get a nice dough formed. Then use your hands to get a nice ball formed. The dough with be sticky.
  5. Lightly flour a work space, and put your dough there. You can cut these scones in two ways: You can form dough into a circle and cut into 8 triangles, or you can form dough into a rectangle and cut dough into 10 squares, and cut those squares into triangles to get 20 scones. I did the rectangle version, and got 20 scones.
  6. Put scones in prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes for smaller triangles, and 18-22 for larger triangles.
  7. Cool on wire rack. Once cool, time to make your glaze!

Glaze:

  1. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and coffee and whisk until smooth. Whisk in melted chocolate until smooth.
  2. Lay a piece of parchment paper on a work surface, place a wire rack over paper, and put scones on rack. Put chocolate glaze in a zip baggy, and cut off a small piece of plastic off the corner of the bag.
  3. Drizzle glaze over scones, and let glaze set for an hour.

There ya go! So yummy, and really pretty easy.
