2 T. Baking Powder
1/4 cup Sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 and 1/2 sticks of butter

Directions:
Directions:
Mix dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Add chocolate chips. Make a well in the center and pour in buttermilk. Mix until the dough clumps together. Separate the dough in half and roll out into a pie shape. Lay the pie shape onto a greased cookie sheet and cut into pie shape pieces. Do the same for the other half.

Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes or until just a light brown.

Personal Notes:
I mix my dough in a mixer. It mixes well and only takes a couple of minutes.

I also bake it on a pizza stone. It seems to do better than a regular cookie sheet.

These scones are wonderful and I get many requests from co-workers asking me to bring these scones into the office.
