These scones turned out wonderfully. I love the taste of the buttermilk mixed with the chocolate chips and sweet glaze.

My daughter-in-law got me hooked on scones and I tried these and my family loves them. My husband requests these scones. Great texture. For an extra treat I added a chocolate glaze.
