Chocolate Chip Scones

Scones~I love scones~I do~ they are like biscuits but better~because you can add any filling and they are so perfect for breakfast or brunch~they are tender~flaky~crispy~gems of delight~and I decided to make chocolate chip scones~I had some mini~chocolate chips in my pantry and decided to use them~I have like half-empty bags of all kinds of chips in my pantry that I really need to use up. Anyways these by far are my favorite kind of scones~studded with mini flakes of chocolate chips~Buttery perfection and its crunchy and tender~A scone that is perfect~I think in every way.
