.5 tsp baking soda
.25 tsp salt
1.25 sticks (10 tbsp) butter
1 c (5 oz) semisweet chocolate
1 egg
.5 c heavy cream
*heat oven to 375 degrees. mix dry ingredients and cut in butter coarsely. fold in chocolate. whisk together wet ingredients and fold into dry mixture. turn out dough and shape into rectangle. divide dough and bake 25-30min.

too many scones!! next time i'll be sure to halve the recipe. and i didn't like how the dough turned out. i was afraid of overmixing so the second the dough kinda held on its own, i quit trying to force it to come together. the dough was really crumbly but i had so much faith! i believed in the recipe until the very end when i opened the oven. i didn't like the chocolate chips in the finished scones either -- they just got in the way. i'm thinking of either making the chips smaller or melting the chocolate next time.
