"This recipe is my favorite scone recipe. I substitute The semi sweet chocolate chips for white chips. Have also used butterscotch chips. Very versatile recipe."

"I used this recipe a few years ago and it was my favorite scone. I lost it, so happy to find it here.

"This is an annual request. I add my twist by using half semi sweet chips and half milk chocolate. Then for the non-choc eaters, I use French Vanilla creamer and 3/4 cup white choc chips, 3/4 cup dried cranberries. I make my scones a bit smaller, as they are really, really rich.  This is the most requested cookie type dessert I make. ***** Five stars all the way!"
