Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Lightly butter a 9 inch diameter circle in the center of a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut the butter into 1/2 inch cubes, and distribute evenly over flour mixture. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into the flour mixture. Stir together buttermilk, egg, and extract; add to the flour mixture, and stir to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips and hazelnuts. The dough will be sticky.
  3. Spread the dough into an 8 inch diameter circle on the baking sheet. Cut with a serrated knife into 8 wedges.
  4. Bake for 17 to 19 minutes, or until the top in lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer scones to the wire rack to cool, and cut into wedges. Serve warm, or cool completely and store in airtight container.

This is the BEST recipe. I used fat-free hazelnut cinnamon non-dairy creamer in place of the buttermilk and left out the hazelnuts. A friend of mine from London says they are very authentic scones. Thank you so much for posting this!

I have made these scones (minus the hazelnuts) several times for guests and they loved them and asked for the recipe. I used 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips and that was plenty. Enjoy!

This recipe is a new family favorite! I've long been searching for a scone recipe worthy of my favorite bakery scones, and this is the one. I will note however that for my taste the 1 1/2 teaspoons of almond extract is too much -- the almond flavor is so strong that it's like marzipan candy. I cut the amount in half and felt it was perfect, still noticeably an almond flavor but not overwhelming the other flavors. The full cup of chocolate chips will seem like overkill to many, but I'm a chocoholic so I was very pleased! It's also a lovely recipe made with dried cherries instead of chocolate chips.
