Brown Sugar and Butterscotch Scones

Here is another version of my amazing scone recipe. They were so great! My husband said they were his favorite yet!

  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1 cup room temperature butter, cubed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cups milk
  • 1 cup of butterscotch chips
Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cube the butter and mix in to the mixture until the butter is pea sized. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together. Stir into the flour mixture until the dough is moist, do not over mix. Knead in the butterscotch chips. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead a couple of times. Divide dough into two equal balls. Pat each ball into an 8 inch circle. (Be careful to make sure it is not too thick in the center.) Place each ball onto a parchment paper lined or greased cookie sheet. Score each circle with a knife into 6 wedges. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes, or until done and lightly golden. Allow the scones to cool.
