As an aside, I'm always on the lookout for some good recipes using buttermilk. If you have any, please leave me a recommendation in the comments section— I'm all ears!
This recipe caught my eye not only for the buttermilk ingredient, but also for the skinny factor. I was curious about how it would taste. Skinny sounds so much more appealing than reduced-fat scone dontcha think?
I needed to do a better job cutting in the butter. Let's see how it melts into the dough.
The unbaked dough is rather soft, but I still could cut them into pieces.
I wish there could have been more separation.
The crust came out well-browned and crunchy.
Fresh out of the oven, the chocolate chips were all melty and soft,
which is the best time to eat it. This baked good needs to be eaten day-of.
Ultimately, I like this cranberry ginger scone better, but this isn't a bad way to use up some buttermilk. Just know that the consistency is more bread-like, denser and a bit chewier. Not your typical scone texture. The Son said, "The chocolate chips are the best part," as he happily devoured the whole serving.
