White and Dark Chocolate Chip Scones - Recipe

     I love scones and these are awesome!  This is a recipe I made for Valentine's Day.  It has chocolate of course!  -Both white and dark!  I am in heaven!  Remember the first rule of making scones - the less you work the dough, the better.  They are great for both afternoon tea and with a glass of wine with someone you love!

White and Dark Chocolate Scones

(Makes 12)   

1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/3 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder

1/4 cup Butter
1/3 cup White Chocolate Chips

1/3 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
2 Eggs
1/2 c. minus 1 T.  Plain Goat Yogurt

     Grease a cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Whisk together the flours, sugar, and baking powder. Cut the butter into the flour mixture. Break the pieces up into the size of gravel/peas using your fingers. Add the chocolate chips to the flour mixture. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and yogurt. Create a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the wet ingredients. Using a large fork, stir the ingredients quickly only until it starts to come together. Finish gathering ingredients quickly and lightly with your hands (don't overwork the dough), and separate into two balls. Take one ball of dough and pat it into a circle right on the cookie sheet. Cut into 6 triangles and space them 1 1/2-2 inches apart. Repeat with the other ball of dough. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden on the top and bottom. Be careful and don't let the bottom of the scones burn. Transfer to a rack to cool.
