Super Simple Coffee Creamer Cream Scones

Using That Coffee Creamer Lying Around to Make a Beautiful Scone Treat

We all love scones, but who has whipping cream handy all the time. Simple solution, substitute it with coffee creamer. I took a chance a few weeks back when I was making breakfast treats for a morning Girl Scout Troop Leaders meeting, and wow were they yummy. So, Sabrina, this one is for you. (Be sure to make some sweet cream to go with them!)

Super Simple Coffee Creamer Cream Scones:
2 Cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 Cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 Cup coffee creamer (I used Coffeemate Italian Sweet Cream)
1/3 Cup cold unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (or more if you like) Ghiradelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

 

Cut the butter into small pats and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender.

 

The mixture should resemble course crumbs.

 

In a small measuring cup combine the coffee cream, beaten egg and vanilla.

 

Add the wet to the dry and stir until just combined.

 

Dump the dough out on the counter and combine into a ball.

 

Add the chocolate chips till evenly combined.

Over mixing will lead to dry scones, so do not over mix.

 

Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll or hand pat the dough into about a 7 inch circle.

 

Cut the dough into 8 wedges and gently transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.

Brush the tops with a little coffee creamer and sprinkle with sugar, if desired.

 

Bake the scones for 15-18 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool.

These are light, fluffy and anything but the typical dry English scone.

Try dried cranberries or dried cherries and orange zest, or poppy seeds and lemon zest, instead of chocolate chips some time. Any combination is amazing.

Enjoy.
