Ricotta Chocolate Chips Scones

Ingredients

3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch baking soda
1 pinch salt
30 grams (2 tbsp) butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
milk to brush and brown sugar to top

Preparation

1
Preheat the oven to 400F degress. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2
In a bowl whisk together the flour, the sugar, the baking powder, the baking soda and the salt.
3
Cut in the ricotta and butter and lightly work with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Gently stir in the buttermilk, the vanilla extract and the chocolate chips.
4
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead gently for 1 – 2 minutes, the dough should hold together but be a bit crumbly.
5
Place the dough on the prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pat the dough into a 3/4-inch-thick circle.
6
Cut the dough into 4 wedges without separating them. Use a pastry brush to brush the surface of the dough with milk and then sprinkle with brown sugar.
7
Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Let them cool on a cooling rack.
