3 Cups Self-Raising Flour
80g Butter, chopped
1 â€“ 1 1/4 Cups Milk (start with just 1 Cup, and add the rest if needed)
3/4 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips (or Dark if you prefer)
Preheat your oven to 200C.
Place your flour into a large mixing bowl.
Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Add your Chocolate chips and mix through the flour.
Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add the milk.
Using a flat-bladed knife, gently stir the milk into the flour until it forms a soft dough.
Add the extra milk if required.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board, and knead gently, but not too much or your scones will be tough.
Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds.
Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds.
Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart.
Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack.
