Scone Nibbles

It's no secret that I love scones and I love miniature food. Why it took me so long to make mini scones, I will never know! I get the King Arthur Flour catalog and often tear out recipes to try. This was one of them and I LOVED these. Glaze or no glaze didn't really matter... these are delicious chocolate chip scones. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, dessert, or really anytime!


Scone Nibbles
King Arthur Flour

2 3/4 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1 to 2 cups of mini chocolate chips (I used regular)
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 to 2/3 cup half & half or milk

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
7 TBSP water, enough to make a thin glaze
1 tsp vanilla

Whisk together all the dry ingredients; mix in butter until crumbly. Stir in chips.

In a seperate bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla, and 1/2 cup half & half. Stir the wet into the dry. Mix in more half & half if the dough seems dry.

Scrape the dough onto a well floured surface and pat into an 8" square. Cut into 16 2" squares, then cut each square in half to make 32 small triangles.

Transfer scones to parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.

Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and cool completely.

Mix glaze ingredients and coat scones. Place on a rack to set.

Everything in mini-form always tastes better!

I've been looking for a scone recipe that doesn't use cream (because I never have any on hand) - so this one should work quite nicely!
