Chocolate chip scones are great anytime of the day – serve at teatime, brunch or as an after school snack.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips.
Mix 3/4 cup of the cream, egg and vanilla in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Add to flour mixture; stir until a soft dough forms.
Place dough on lightly floured surface. Pat into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges. Separate wedges and place on ungreased baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining 1 tablespoon cream.
Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown, rotating baking sheet halfway through cook time. Cool slightly on wire rack.
Spray cookie cutter with no stick cooking spray to prevent dough from sticking to cookie cutter.
