Ingredients

  • 85 g all-purpose flour 1/3 cup + 1 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 7 g unsalted butter -cubed and rather cold- 1 heaped tsp
  • 1/2 egg
  • granulated sugar to sprinkle before baking

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven at 420°F (220°C) and grease a silicon mat or prepare a parchment paper in a baking mat.

  2. In a little bowl, mix the flour and baking powder.

  3. Add the cold butter in little chunks and rub it with your hands, or a fork, or a pastry cutter. Bare in mind you want your dough to stay cold, so if you're sweaty or hot, don't use your hands.

  4. Fold in the half egg and chocolate chips if using and with a rubber spatula mix everything until well incorporated but not over-mixed. When a dough forms, you can finish with your hands. 

  5. Sprinkle your parchment paper with a tbsp of flour and a tsp of sugar and begin to work and shape your dough.

  6. Shaping and cutting:

    Form a rectangle shape and flatten with your (floured if you want to be absolutely sure it doesn't stick but I don't use flour) hands. Fold the widths and then the lengths; Flatten with your hands and turn back your dough. Cut hearts with your cutter.

  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

  8. If you want to glaze the scones:

    Let cool the scones about 15-20 minutes. Melt 20-30 g chocolate and spread in just one side of the scones. Let set in at room temperature for 20 minutes or in the fridge but don't let the scones too long in it.
