Since it doesn’t seem acceptable to eat chocolate chip cookies for breakfast… says my parents and my husband and well I’m sure many more people may feel this way, but really….cereal is no better in my opinion I made Chocolate Chip SCONES…. Scones are perfect for breakfast. I also think waffles and ice cream are great for breakfast too but I still can’t seem to convince my dad of that one. I think my mom would agree with me, after all she is the one who would let me put chocolate chips on pancakes. Did I mention how much my kids LOVE that I think chocolate chips are acceptable for breakfast, yea they aren’t young anymore. When they were young I was a little more responsible with breakfast decisions. These scones are not only perfect for breakfast, but hey are to enjoyed all day long! rolling out the dough in between wax paper sheets helps the dough from sticking, lightly flour the wax paper if the dough seems too sticky. Rolling the dough out using 1/2 inch dowels to guide the rolling pin to keep the scones an even thickness makes for evenly baked uniform scones.
