  • 2 cups flour you may need a touch more
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter frozen
  • 1/2 cup milk we use whole, you can also use heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Grate your frozen butter on the finer side. Add butter to flour bowl and toss just until combined.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the milk, egg, and vanilla together. Pour over the flour mixture and mix until moistened.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips. Add a touch more flour 1 -2 Tablespoons at a time if needed. You don't want the dough too wet but you also don't want it dry. It will be a little sticky. Form the dough into a ball with floured hands and transfer to a silicone or parchment paper covered baking sheet.
  • Press into a neat 8″ disc and cut into 8 equal wedges with a very sharp knife. I like to separate my wedges just slightly so they bake more evenly.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until slightly browned and insides are done.
