Sour Cream-Chocolate Chip Scones
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cups sour cream
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter and, using two knives, cut it in until the mixture forms small crumbs. Add the chocolate chips and toss to combine. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
In a bowl, whisk together the sour cream, egg, and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture and, using a fork, gently stir until incorporated (do not over mix). Bring the dough together into a ball.
On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into an 6-inch round (about 1 inch thick). Cut into 8 wedges, separate, and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
