When the sun spreads the day’s first rays over the horizon and peaks into our home, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee wakes me up. The ready-to-bake scone dough awaits in the fridge. I know it’s going to be a good morning!
Winter mornings are the best for hot coffee and freshly baked scones. Add dark chocolate chunks and you have the perfect start to your day.
Scones are one of my favorite things to bake for breakfast. The dough comes together quickly and easily. There is no kneading required. The fact that I can make it the day before and refrigerate it overnight and then cut and bake while the coffee brews makes them even better.
Chocolate Chunk Scones - a perfect addition to your morning cup of coffee!
