Five Chip Scones

Today was the first day back to school for my daughter so I let her pick what she wanted for a special breakfast. Usually she picks either beignets or scones (what can I say, she is TOTALLY my kid!). Last night she told me she wanted scones. I wanted something new so I decided to create my own scone recipe.

Earlier in the week I made these 5 chip cookies to send to my best friend. It is one of my favorite cookie recipes and I thought it would make a great scone. So I took all my favorite things from the cookie (the oats and five different chips) and turned it into a delicious scone.

They were FANTASTIC and a new family favorite. I know I sent my baby girl off to school with full belly and a smile on her face!

Five Chip Scones

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oats
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
11 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup peanut butter chips
1/3 cup butterscotch chips
1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
1/3 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Mix flour, pats, baking powder, salt, sugar and brown sugar, until well incoporated. Cut the butter into tiny pieces and mix into the flour mixture. Mix in chips. Add the milk and vanilla extract, and mix to form a dough.

Cut dough in two and shape into 2 rounds, 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges. Seperate slightly to help cook. Cook for 15 - 17 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through in the middle.
